United States donated $ 7.8 million aid to Panama during the COVID-19 pandemic
Due to the health crisis that arose from Covid-19, the United States has donated a total of $ 7.8 million to the Republic of Panama, which includes ventilators and kits to test for the virus.
Those donations, according to the United States Embassy in Panama, were to strengthen the Panamanian health system during the pandemic.
The assistance included the donation of four field hospitals with capacity for 40 beds each, air conditioners, car washes and a power plant.
The statement recalled that the hospitals were installed in La Chorrera and Panama City, which has made it possible to increase the hospital capacity of the health system.
In addition, the United States government delivered and provided 150 ventilators that were distributed in public hospitals throughout the country.
We do what a friendly country does - shake hands. At this difficult time for our countries, the ties between Panama and the United States have become even closer, said Stewart Tuttle, acting chief of mission of the United States Embassy in Panama.
