Spain Has Sent 5 Tons of Medical Supplies to Brazil

MADRID — Spain’s foreign minister says that the country has sent 5 tons of medical supplies to Brazil responding to a request for foreign aid by authorities in the Latin American country.

Arancha González-Laya says the shipment included material for intubating COVID-19 patients in extreme need of respiratory aid.

“We are doing this because we understand that the fight against COVID has to take a priority,” the minister says.

The coronavirus is taking a rising toll in Brazil as less than 9 million of Brazil’s 210 million residents have been fully vaccinated against the disease. Brazil is second behind the United States with 383,502 confirmed deaths. It’s third globally in cases with 14.1 million.
