US President Donald Trump has confirmed that his country will be sending 250 ventilators to Nigeria among other countries, to assist in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump said this during a press briefing at the Oval Office in the White House on Wednesday.

In response to a question about being surrounded by persons not using face masks nor observing social distancing, President Trump said, “I am signing a bill and you criticise us. Here’s the story: There is nothing I can do to satisfy the media, the democrats or the fake news, and I understand that. We did the greatest job mobilisation with the ventilators, and I don’t think there’s a story on what a great job we did.

“Now we are helping Germany and we are helping many other countries – France, Spain, Italy and Nigeria. We are sending 250 ventilators to Nigeria.”

Recall that in April, Nigeria’s Minister of Information Lai Mohammed announced that President Trump, while speaking in a telephone conversation with President Muhammadu Buhari, would be donating a number of ventilators to Nigeria to assist in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

A ventilator is a machine that assists a person to breathe; it is indispensable for the treatment of critical cases of COVID-19.
