The Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, Shi Ting Wang is wondering why countries across the globe are asking China for help even though they are also suffering from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to him, China is still recovering but had to support other countries with medical items and PPEs since they are in need.

Presenting a consignment of PPEs to the government of Ghana, the Chinese Ambassador to Ghana said “China itself has just tasted the bitterness of COVID-19 and is still recovering…but at the same time, many other countries, especially some European countries which have been hard hit are calling for our help.”

However, he said their supplies are not sufficient because of the demand from other countries, making their resources very limited, hence the reason they chose to support Africa with the items because of the strong bilateral relations they have with several countries on the continent.

“To be honest, nearly every country in the world has asked for China’s help. In the face of such a huge challenge, we have managed to procure these supplies and get them here in chartered flight when all scheduled flights have come to a halt. It is not easy, per se”.

“This effort shows China’s firm commitment to China-Africa relations and further strengthening the strong historical bond between China and Africa”, he said.

The Chinese government has donated 60 metric tons of medical aid containing face masks, ventilators, among others to the government to help with the fight against the novel coronavirus.

Ghana is part of 18 African countries to benefit from the Chinese support against COVID-19. The beneficial countries, besides Ghana, also include Nigeria, Senegal, Gabon, Sierra Leone, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Côte d’ Ivoire, Gambia, Liberia, Sao Tome and Principe, Mali, Burkina Faso, Equatorial Guinea, Togo, Benin, Republic of Congo and Cape Verde.
