What a great position to take.

A role of leadership to help the world. That is America at her best.

Today, President Trump invoked the DPA(Defense Production Act) to accelerate the production of ventilators. Then he said, "we will continue production after meeting the need in the US, to send ventilators overseas."

God bless...wdl

"Coronavirus masks that France ordered from China were bought at the last minute by the United States as they waited to be loaded onto cargo planes, French officials have said.

"Americans pay three or four times the amount we pay, and in cash," said Jean Rottner, head of France's eastern region, one of the areas worst affected by the coronavirus outbreak, according to reports by France Info.

On Thursday, a planeload of Chinese-made face masks were bought up right on the tarmac just as the much needed protective gear was about to set off for France.

"We're working around the clock to ensure these masks arrive," says Rottner, blaming unfair competition for delays.
The United States, which now has the highest number of known cases of coronavirus in the world, is trying to procure any masks available, disrupting deliveries to other nations, another report by French daily Liberation indicated."
So sorry, William, I rather wait for that to really happen before I believe it. All the best, stay safe. J
