CTBTO opens PPE stocks to help fight COVID-19
The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) has opened up its stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE) to help support medical staff fighting COVID-19 in developing countries.
The first consignment of masks, gloves, protective suits and other vital items was handed over on 3 April to Ambassador Dieudonné Kéré of Burkina Faso, one of the African countries hardest hit by the pandemic.
\On 14 April a second load was collected by Ambassador Juan Francisco Facetti of Paraguay. “Solidarity always with our member states fighting COVID-19,” Executive Secretary Lassina Zerbo said. “The CTBTO is doing what it can to support.”
This action by the CTBTO will help to stop the angel of death in Burkina Faso and give hope to medical staff and our people.
All this will go to the first-line people who are working: the medical doctors, the nurses, the sanitary personnel. So this donation will save lives – many lives.
