The donation from the Chinese, which forms part of their contribution to the country's COVID-19 fight, follows on the heels of a gift consisting of similar items worth $5 million to the Western Regional Health Authority, last Friday.
Dr Chang, who is also Member of Parliament for St James North West, expressed gratitude for the donation, stressing that it will greatly assist the beneficiaries of the supplies.
