U.S. Donation of 310 Oxygen Cannisters Over One Million Liters to the Ministry of Health

The U.S. Embassy in Tunisia, in coordination with the U.S. military’s U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), provided 310 oxygen cannisters containing over one million liters of oxygen to the Tunisian Ministry of Health. “The United States is here to support the people of Tunisia during this serious health crisis. This oxygen donation is a symbol of the strong partnership between our two nations and will provide immediate relief to COVID-19 patients in hospitals across Tunisia,” said Ambassador Donald Blome.

Since the start of the pandemic, the U.S. government has provided more than $36 million to support Tunisia’s response to the health crisis and to address the pandemic’s long-term economic and social effects.
