Australia has provided Bangladesh Armed Forces with five tonnes of personnel protection equipment (PPE) under a defence cooperation programme to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Australian High Commissioner to Bangladesh, Jeremy Bruer, handed over the consignment to Lieutenant General Md Mahfuzur Rahman, the principal staff officer of the Armed Forces Division, says a statement of the high commission today.

The PPE consisting of 12,000 high quality coveralls and 200,000 gloves were funded through the Australian Department of Defence.

"The Bangladesh Armed Forces are key frontline responders in the response to Covid-19 in Bangladesh. This contribution underlines the strong relationship between the defence forces of Australia and Bangladesh," Bruer said.
