He said the United States stands with Pakistan in its fight against coronavirus and announced several new ways America is partnering with Pakistan to combat coronavirus with more than $8 million in new contributions.

“First, the United States will provide three new mobile labs so Pakistanis living in virus hotspots can be tested, treated, and monitored to stop the spread; we will also fund high-tech emergency operations centers in Islamabad, Sindh, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Balochistan; and we will expand our partnership in training community healthcare workers to assist people in their homes to lessen the burden on hospitals.”

He also announced $4million for new life-saving activities in Afghan refugee and host communities in Pakistan, administered by the United Nations Refugee Agency.

“All of these contributions were identified as top priority needs by Pakistani authorities, and they are fully paid by the American people. Prime Minister Khan identified another top priority: debt relief. The United States is a leading supporter of the immediate and exceptional measures just agreed by G20 nations, which will provide substantial relief to Pakistan.”

He said it was the latest chapter in a long, vibrant U.S.-Pakistan health partnership that builds on U.S. contributions over the past 20 years of more than $1.1 billion in the health sector and more than $18.4 billion overall in the U.S.-Pakistan development partnership.
