Chinese Miltary Donates COVID-19 Supplies to the Rwandan Military

A Chinese People’s Liberation Army cargo plane landed Wednesday to deliver $300,000 worth of COVID-19 PPE and other medical supplies. The PLA donated the material to their counterparts in the Rwandan Defense Force. 

It’s not clear from the statement on the Rwandan Ministry of Defence website whether the donations are intended to help contain the spread of COVID-19 within the ranks of the Rwandan military or if they’ll be distributed to the civilian population.
