United States President Donald Trump has revealed he would be sending 250 ventilators to the Federal Republic of Nigeria to help in the fight against the novel coronavirus.
Speaking during a visit to Honeywell International in Phoenix Arizona, Trump claimed that the U.S. has now flattened the curve on coronavirus and they would now be helping other nations, including Nigeria with essential medical supplies.
He remarked at Honeywell International in Phoenix :
"We have more ventilators now than anybody in the world and we are helping France, as you know. We are helping France, Italy, Spain, Nigeria. We are giving I think 250 to Nigeria. We have many countries that we are helping," he said.
"Thanks to the profound commitment of our citizens, we have flattened the curve and countless American lives have been saved. Our country is now in the next stage of the battle. A very safe, phased and gradual reopening of our country."
The US president during a phone conversation with the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari last week promised he would send ventilators to the west African nation.
