Nigeria Says It still Hasn’t Received Ventilators from the U.S.

LAGOS, Nigeria — The Nigerian government says it still hasn't received ventilators from the United States a month after President Donald Trump promised to send hundreds to the West African country.

Trump said last week 1,000 ventilators had been provided to Nigeria. But the country’s information minister, Lai Mohammed, says, “To the best of my knowledge, they have not arrived. When they do arrive, it will be made public.”

Trump had offered to provide ventilators to Nigeria in late April during a telephone conversation with Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari.

Nigeria has recorded about 9,000 COVID-19 cases. However, testing has been limited, complicating efforts to track the full extent of the crisis in Africa’s most populous nation.
