COVID-19: US gives 2nd shipment of medical supplies to Bangladesh

The United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), delivered to Bangladesh a second shipment of emergency medical supplies to save lives, stop the spread of COVID-19, and meet the urgent health needs of the Bangladeshi people.

U.S. Embassy Dhaka Deputy Chief of Mission JoAnne Wagner, and USAID Mission Director Derrick S. Brown, joined by the Director of America Wing from the Bangladesh Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), Seheli Sabrin, welcomed the arrival of this second shipment at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on Thursday.

This latest shipment includes emergency supplies jointly donated by USAID, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, and Henry Schein, Inc., an American company for healthcare professionals.

On June 7, a U.S. military flight arrived in Dhaka loaded with additional medical supplies critical for COVID-19 treatment.

Together, these deliveries build on the United States’ ongoing efforts to mitigate the challenges posed by the pandemic in Bangladesh.  The United States has worked closely with Bangladesh since the beginning of the pandemic to strengthen the government’s response to prevent and respond to COVID-19, contributing more than $84 million to date in development and humanitarian assistance.

The recent shipments added over $2 million to the total U.S. government contribution to Bangladesh.
