The United States government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), donated 100 state-of-the-art ventilators to assist Afghanistan in its fight against COVID-19.
As per Wasdam report, the ventilators will be distributed to hospitals in the provinces most affected by #COVID-19. This donation delivers on President Donald Trump’s generous offer of these life-saving and critically needed supplies and supports Afghanistan’s urgent response to the pandemic.
Made in America, the ventilators reflect the latest in cutting-edge medical design and technology. They are compact, easily deployable, and will enable Afghanistan to more effectively treat patients with COVID-19.
They compliment additional technical and humanitarian assistance and training being funded by the United States.
The Charge d’Affaires for the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan, Ambassador #Ross_Wilson said, “The #United_States stands with Afghanistan in its fight against COVID-19, which poses an unprecedented global health threat. These American-made ventilators will help Afghan patients in the most acute need of medical care. This compliments our long partnership with the Afghan health sector to improve the well-being of its people.”
