The United States has donated 100 ventilators worth USD 3 million to Pakistan to support its fight against COVID-19. The US embassy in a statement on Friday said the Trump administration through the US Agency for International Development (USAID) donated a shipment of 100 brand-new, state-of-the-art ventilators to Pakistan.
The ventilators arrived in Karachi on July 2 and will be sent to hospitals across Pakistan. This donation delivers on President Donald Trump's generous offer of these critically needed supplies and supports Pakistan's urgent response to the pandemic, the embassy said. Made in America, the ventilators are valued at about USD 3 million and reflect the latest in cutting-edge medical design and technology, it said. They are compact, easily deployable, and will enable Pakistan to more effectively treat patients suffering from COVID-19. -- PTI
