United States aids El Salvador in the fight against coronavirus

The United States has become the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic but after several weeks of fighting the ‘silent killer’ the curve seems to be flattening and the country is getting ready to reopen businesses and jump start the economy.

Since the number of cases seem to be decreasing on the daily basis, the president Donald Trump used his Twitter account to communicate the world that the U.S. will be helping El Salvador to fight against the pandemic.

“Just spoke to El Salvador’s president Nayib Bukele and the United States will be helping them with Ventilators, which are desperately needed over there. They have worked well with us on immigration at the Southern Border,” Tweeted Trump on Friday, April 24.

Couple of minutes later the president of El Salvador replied to Donald Trump saying how thankful he was for the help, “thank you president Donald Trump, it was a very nice call. We are really glad for your support. Those ventilators will save hundreds, if not thousands of lives.”
