Ivorian Health Minister Eugene Aka Aouélé welcomed their arrival, saying the fight against the pandemic must be done democratically.

“The pandemic has taken a heavy toll around the world and our country is no exception. More than 32,000 people living in Ivory Coast have been infected with the disease, and 188 have died. This is a tragedy.”
