Equatorial Guinea on Wednesday pledged to donate $2 million (1.8 million euros) to China for the battle against coronavirus.
The central African state said the donation was a mark of “support and solidarity” with Asian nation.
Since the outbreak of coronavirus in late December nearly 500 lives have been lost, with more than 24,000 people infected in mainland China as the virus continues to more than 20 countries.
As part of preventative measures against the virus on January 27, Equatorial Guinea announced that all people entering the country from China would be quarantined for 14 days.
It has since placed 25 people in isolation, according to the country’s national committee to counter the virus.
Currently, there has not yet been a confirmed infection reported in sub-Saharan Africa.
