South Korea is sending the United States 2 million N95 masks to help battle the coronavirus, according to Yonhap News Agency.
“The provision followed comprehensive considerations, such as our country’s domestic COVID-19 situation and the local supply and demand for masks, and the need for support for our ally, the U.S.,” South Korea’s foreign ministry said in a press release.
“We hope that South Korea and the U.S. will quickly overcome the shared challenge of the COVID-19 disease through this support, and this can contribute to sharing Korea’s quarantine experience with the international community,” it added.
South Korea reported a spike in COVID-19 cases on Sunday following an outbreak tied to several nightclubs and bars – so far, there have been 10,909 positive coronavirus cases and 256 deaths.
