ISLAMABAD: A special plane from China carrying 20 tonnes of medical equipment to help in the fight against coronavirus, landed at Islamabad International Airport on Saturday.
A spokesperson for the National Disaster Management Authority said the medical equipment had been procured through the National Disaster Risk Management Fund.
The equipment includes 99 ventilators, 260,000 N-95 masks, 300 protective suits, 600 safety goggles, over 7,000 KN-95 masks, and 6,000 surgical masks, the spokesperson said.
