According to the embassy, the donation included handwashing stations, face shields, digital thermometers, paper towels, liquid soap, gel sanitizer, surgical masks, cloth masks, gloves and trash cans.

"This donation is valued at $15,000, and it is part of the more than $2 million that the U.S. Embassy has given to the Costa Rican social security system to address the sanitary emergency due to covid-19," the embassy said in its statement.

On Sept. 10, the embassy donated medical supplies to the National Emergencies Commission through the U.S. Southern Command Humanitarian Assistance Program.

According to the U.S. Ambassador Sharon Day, this donation demonstrates U.S. support to Costa Rica in fighting the global pandemic. “I have no doubt that the U.S. and Costa Rica will persevere because together we have, together we can, and together we will overcome every hardship,” she said.
