Vietnam receives 8 tonnes of COVID-19 medical equipment from Poland

VOV.VN - A military transport plane carrying eight tonnes of medical equipment donated by the Polish Government arrived at Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport on September 10.

The shipment includes ventilators, electric breast pumps, heart monitors, and personal protective equipment such as anti-droplet goggles, gloves and masks.

The haul of medical equipment was loaded onto a plane that took off from Poland on September 8.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Polish Foreign Ministry said that the shipment is a testament to the traditional friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

The Vietnamese community in Poland have carried out many activities, including providing protective equipment and SARS-CoV-2 test kits to local people since the resurgence of the virus, so Poland’s support is the result of a relationship based on solidarity and mutual respect, said the diplomat.

Earlier, Poland decided to donate 500,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine and medical equipment worth US$4 million to Vietnam.

Vietnam is the first non-European country that has received vaccines and medical equipment from Poland.
