WASHINGTON, March 31. /TASS/. Russia has sent a plane with medical equipment to the United States amid the pandemic of COVID-19 (the disease caused by the novel coronavirus), US President Donald Trump told reporters on Monday.

“I have to say, we’ve had great relationships with a lot of countries. China sent us some stuff,” he told reporters during a briefing at the White House. “Russia sent us a very, very large plane load of things. Medical equipment. Very nice.”

He did not go into further details about Russia’s aid.

“Other countries sent us things that I was very surprised at, very happy surprised,” the US leader continued.

In late December 2019, Chinese authorities notified the World Health Organization (WHO) about the outbreak of a previously unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan, central China. Since then, cases of the novel coronavirus – named COVID-19 by the WHO – have been reported in more than 160 countries, including Russia.

The WHO on March 11 declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. As of now, more than 720,000 people have been infected around the world and over 35,000 have died.

As of March 30, a total of 1,836 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Russia. Sixty-six patients have recovered. According to data as of 12:00 Moscow time, nine patients died. Later in the day, coronavirus-associated deaths were reported from Moscow, St. Petersburg, and the Vladimir region. Moscow accounts for the majority of cases (1,226). The Russian government set up an Internet hotline to keep the public informed about the coronavirus situation.

Pentagon Confirms Death of First US Service Member From COVID-19 Virus

he Pentagon on Monday confirmed the death of the first US military service member to the COVID-19 coronavirus.

According to a Pentagon news release, the New Jersey Army National Guardsman passed away Saturday. He had been in the hospital since March 21.

“Today is a sad day for the Department of Defense as we have lost our first American service member – active, reserve or Guard – to Coronavirus,” Secretary of Defense Mark Esper is quoted as saying in the release. “This is a stinging loss for our military community, and our condolences go out to his family, friends, civilian co-workers and the entire National Guard community. The news of this loss strengthens our resolve to work ever more closely with our interagency partners to stop the spread of COVID-19.”

As of March 27, the Pentagon has reported 652 cases of the coronavirus within the Department of Defense (DoD). Out of the total number of patients, 343 are active-duty military members, 135 are civilians, 111 are dependents and 63 are contractors, CNBC reported. There have been two other deaths within the DoD.

Last week, a US Marine became the first service member stationed inside the Pentagon to test positive for COVID-19. The service member is currently in isolation at his home.

The Pentagon on March 25 also raised the military’s health protection level on all DoD installations globally to the second-highest setting, known as “Charlie,” as the number of COVID-19-positive service members continues to increase. Under the Charlie designation, large-scale meetings at some DoD installations will be canceled, people’s temperatures will need to be taken before they are allowed into military buildings, and some entrances to buildings will be restricted, Pentagon spokesperson Alyssa Farah told reporters, Sputnik reported.

The latest data from Worldometer reveals that there are more than 782,000 cases of the coronavirus worldwide, and more than 37,000 people have died as a result. In the US, there are more than 161,000 coronavirus cases, and almost 3,000 people have died from the disease.
