Governor Torres to provide FSM with PPE and 25,000 COVID-19 test kits to assist in COVID-19 response efforts

Governor Ralph DLG. Torres on Saturday, July 30, 2022, met virtually with Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) President David Panuelo to discuss matters of importance to FSM, the rising COVID-19 cases throughout FSM, and how the CNMI may assist in their COVID-19 response efforts.


Governor Torres informed President Panuelo that the CNMI is prepared to send 25,000 COVID-19 testing kits, as well as personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gowns, gloves, face masks, and hand sanitizers to FSM.


“I am glad that we are able to assist our brothers and sisters in FSM with these test kits and PPE.

In the virtual meeting, President Panuelo extended his gratitude and appreciation for Governor Torres and the people of the CNMI for their assistance. Governor Torres informed President Panuelo of his commitment to providing further assistance, with the help of the CNMI COVID-19 Task Force, and ensuring that the test kits and supplies are sent to the people of FSM as soon as possible.
