Washington, May 16: The US will donate ventilators to India to help the country fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
I am proud to announce that the United States will donate ventilators to our friends in India. We stand with India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi during this pandemic. We are also cooperating on vaccine development. Together we will beat this invisible enemy, US President, Donald Trump said in a tweet.
