U.S. President Donald Trump promised to send $100 million in medical aid to Italy in connection with the spread of coronavirus, he said at a press conference in Washington on March 30.
According to the American leader, the decision was taken after a conversation with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.
Trump noted that the U.S. had a lot of surplus products, which are not needed now.
“We will send to Italy various products for about $100 million – surgical, medical and hospital,” CNN quoted him as saying.
At the same time, NBC reported that U.S. doctors and nurses claim a shortage of protective equipment and medical devices and compare the current pandemic with the war. At the same time, according to journalists, the White House blames everything on state governors suffering from coronavirus.
