The United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), in cooperation with Pakistan’s National Disaster Management Authority, has donated a shipment of 100 ventilators to support Pakistan in its fight against COVID-19.
The ventilators arrived in Karachi on July 2 and will be deployed in hospitals across Pakistan.
Made in America, the ventilators are valued at about $3 million and reflect the latest in cutting-edge medical design and technology. They are compact, easily deployable, and will enable Pakistan to more effectively treat patients suffering from COVID-19.
Ambassador Paul Jones remarked, “The United States stands with Pakistan in its fight against coronavirus. These American-made ventilators will help Pakistani patients in the most acute need of medical care.”
The United States has contributed nearly $27 million in new funding so far to this vital partnership that is growing every day.
