Ethiopian Cargo in medical supplies freighter flight

Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services has transported emergency medical supplies from Jack Ma, the founder of China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba, to support the fight against COVID-19.

A freighter flight carrying 108 tons of test kits and other healthcare products took off from Guangzhou in China and arrived at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.

Africa’s largest cargo operator will be distributing the medical supplies to African countries starting today and the first group of recipients of the medical supplies are Djibouti, Eritrea, Egypt and Sudan.

The medical supplies are delivered to Africa following discussions between Ethiopian Prime Minster Abiy Ahmed and Ma regarding the distribution of the supplies to combat the spread of COVID-19.
