President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are working unceasingly with the CDC, WHO, and other world leaders to do everything they can to eradicate this virus and prevent more damage.
And Mike Pence just made an announcement that has all of America rejoicing.
Fox News reports:
Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday announced that thousands of ventilators have been located and will be converted to treat coronavirus patients.
At a Thursday press briefing held by members of the Coronavirus Task Force, Pence said the machines were identified after working with health care providers and suppliers around the country.
“We’re encouraged to learn that we’ve literally identified tens of thousands of ventilators that can be converted to treat patients,” Pence said. “And we remain increasingly confident that we will have the ventilators that we need as the coronavirus makes its way across America.”
Pence also announced an increase of production of N95 masks for medical professionals to use as they treat patients.
“We’re encouraged to see companies like Honeywell and 3M, that I visited a few short weeks ago, take advantage of the changes in the law last night that allow the sale of industrial masks directly to hospitals,” Pence said. “Those companies have now greatly increased by the tens of millions their production of so-called N95 masks that will give our health care workers the protection that they need to administer to those who are dealing with the symptoms or the disease of coronavirus.”
This announcement has provided hope to the citizens of the United States, many of whom are either healthcare workers, or are those in high-risk groups for the disease.
While other countries have found themselves overwhelmed with the sick, to the point where they have to pick and choose who to treat based on survival rate, this news is a breath of fresh air.
Mike Pence continues to work with the Coronavirus Task Force that President Trump has charged him with leading.
He, along with his team of medical experts, continue to find solutions and to fight this deadly virus.
Mike Pence and Donald Trump are tirelessly working around the clock to ensure that this country does not suffer any more tragedy.
They will continue to monitor the situation and work together with experts until this virus is eradicated and life can return to normal for so many Americans affected by this tragic disease.
