The Japanese Government today granted an aid of Rs. 1, 360 million for provisioning necessary Medical Equipment to combat COVID -19 in the country, Ministry of Finance, Economy and Policy Development said.

It said that Japan had agreed to provide Japanese Yen 800 million (Approx. LKR 1,360 million) grant aid under the Japanese non-project grant aid scheme for the provisioning of necessary medical equipment such as MRI Scanner, CT scanner, Bed Side X-Ray Systems, Central Monitors, Bedside Monitors, and Defibrillators to strengthen the COVID -19 prevention activities in Sri Lanka.

It said the grant was made considering the several successful preventive measures to prevent the COVID-19 mass spread of virus among the community.

The Japanese Government said though the country had achieved significant progress in preventing disease, the health system in Sri Lanka needs more facilities to maintain the day-to-day activities within the country up to the state before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Therefore the required additional units in main hospitals with necessary equipment and human resources are being established by health authorities.

The Exchange of Notes pertaining to the above grant were signed by Mr S. R. Attygalle, Secretary, Ministry of Finance, Economic and Policy Development on behalf of the GOSL and Sugiyama Akira, Ambassador of Japan on July 8 2020 at the Ministry of Finance, Economic and Policy Development.
