He was speaking at a handing over ceremony of equipment donated to the ministry by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on Monday.
Mr Sekatle said the donation was a great gesture on the part of those who felt they could share what they have with Lesotho.
The equipment worth over M5 million will ease the burden of work load on the ministry, especially looking into the situation of the pandemic, he said.
Speaking at the same occasion, Dr Richard Banda from WHO said Lesotho has recorded over 11 000 COVID-19 cases and 320 related deaths.
He said WHO is exited to donate to the ministry gear that includes Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Diagnosis tools with the assistance of the African Development Bank and SADC.
Dr Banda showed that the equipment will be used for a long time as the COVID-19 pandemic is far from being over.
