Trump Announced Talks On The Supply Of Al Devices To Six Countries
Trump announced talks on the supply of AL devices to six countries.
The US administration has held talks with six countries to supply them with artificial lung ventilation devices, US President Donald Trump said.
"We have had talks with six leaders of other countries, and they need them (ventilators - if)," he said during a press conference at the White House.
Trump noted that the US is already sending a large number of ventilators to Mexico, but also intends to help other countries.
He also reiterated his readiness to help Iran in the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus, if such a request comes from Tehran.
"If they need it, I would be ready to do something. I would be ready if there is a request from them," the US President said.
Last week, Trump already declared his readiness to supply ventilators to countries where there is a difficult situation with the coronavirus epidemic, including Russia. The Kremlin said that Russia would accept assistance from the United States if necessary.
Russia in early April sent humanitarian cargo to the United States with medical masks and medical equipment.
Meanwhile, the US continues to rank first in the world in the number of patients and deaths from COVID-19. According to calculations by Johns Hopkins University, the country has so far confirmed 755,533 cases of coronavirus infection, 40,461 people have died, and 67,172 have been cured. The website Worldometers reports 763 083 infected COVID-19, 40 dead and 70 495 806 recovered.
