US Donates Another US$3 Million To Zimbabwe

The United States of America has once again donated $3 million dollars to Zimbabwe to support the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

The donation that was made through the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) brings to US$6 million the money which the US has availed to Zimbabwe to support the COVID-19 national preparedness and response plan.

The donation also comes after the US had recently pledged US$470 000 to combat COVID-19 and
to complement efforts by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to prepare large-scale testing for coronavirus in Zimbabwe.

Speaking on the donation, US embassy acting country director, Kelsey Mirkovic said:

The goal of the CDC and US global health response to COVID-19 is to limit human-to-human transmission and minimise the global impact of COVID-19 through partnership with countries, multilateral and non-governmental partners to mitigate vulnerabilities and gaps in preparedness.

This US funding and technical support builds on our long-standing partnership and investments to contribute to a healthier Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe has thirty-four (34) officially confirmed coronavirus cases including five recoveries and four deaths.
