Harare – The United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), donated 20 brand-new, state-of-the-art ventilators to Solidarity Trust Zimbabwe to help Zimbabweans fight COVID-19.  

“Too many Zimbabweans have already passed away due to COVID-19.  We express our deepest condolences to all who have lost their loved ones.  We are pleased to deliver 20 ventilators, which complement Zimbabwe’s efforts to combat COVID-19 and demonstrate the United States’ ongoing commitment to supporting the people of Zimbabwe through this crisis and beyond,” Ambassador Brian A. Nichols said at the handover.

The ventilators, produced in the United States, reflect cutting-edge technology customized to Zimbabwe’s needs and requirements.  Their compact and easily deployable design will provide medical professionals with flexibility in treating patients affected by the virus.  The ventilators may prove lifesaving for individuals who develop respiratory complications due to COVID-19.
