US Donating 200 Ventilators to Russia

WASHINGTON - The United States will donate 200 medical ventilators to Moscow via U.S. military transport beginning next week, to aid against the worsening coronavirus outbreak in Russia.

Government communications obtained by VOA reveal that the first 50 ventilators are being produced in California and will be ready for shipment to a surgical center in Moscow on Wednesday. The remaining 150 will be ready for shipment on May 26.

The U.S. government is donating 100 percent of the cost of the ventilators, their start-up components and their delivery expenses, which officials said totals roughly $4.7 million.

U.S. military aircraft will be used to transport the medical ventilators, considered the “best option” due to extremely limited commercial flights. Officials stressed within the communications that the ventilators are for the Russian people and do not signal a partnership with the Russian military.

5. And I suppose this is being paid for by our tax dollars?

Going to an enemy of ours, while our hospitals and healthcare agencies are still struggling to get the supplies they need? Fuck Trump!

10. Because Russian ventilators catch on fire?

Coronavirus: Ventilator fire blamed for Russia Covid-19 deaths

A fire at a St Petersburg hospital has killed five coronavirus patients in an intensive care unit.

The blaze was apparently started by a short-circuit in a ventilator, Russian news agencies reported.

The fire was quickly put out and 150 people were evacuated from the hospital, the country's emergency ministry said. It is not clear how many people have been injured.

All the patients who died at St George Hospital had been on ventilators.
