Russia: Military plane carrying masks and other coronavirus supplies departs for US

Russian Federation, Chkalovsky Airport
April 01, 2020 at 04:39 GMT +00:00 · Published

A military cargo plane departed the Chkalovskiy airport in the Moscow Region on Wednesday morning after US President Donald Trump accepted an offer of help from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Footage shows the plane full of boxes of supplies and the military plane taking off.

The cargo plane is carrying masks and other essential coronavirus supplies, as the US faces the highest coronavirus cases worldwide and a shortage of medical equipment, including protective gear. Russia also sent medical personnel and equipment to Italy last week, including ventilators.

According to the latest figures compiled from global reports by Johns Hopkins University, at least 850,000 people have been infected by COVID-19 worldwide and over 42,000 people have died. The US has nearly 200,000 confirmed cases, while Russia have just over 2,000.
