ISRAEL - Coronavirus Aid from Three Countries

Arno Froese

Israel received essential supplies for fighting coronavirus from three different countries, the Prime Minister’s Office said.

The PMO credited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s personal intervention, contacting the leaders of various countries, with bringing about the supplies’ arrival, together with the Mossad chief Yossi Cohen, who is leading the “acquisitions war room” for the coronavirus fight.

In addition, following Netanyahu’s phone call with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a delivery arrived from India including tons of raw material that can be used to manufacture choroquine.

Netanyahu thanked Modi for making an exception in his country’s no-export rule.

Israel also received 2.5 tons of anesthetics from Italy and millions of pieces of protective gear from China, including masks and coveralls.

Israel became one of the first countries to receive Avigan, a Japanese drug used to treat influenza, which is thought to be helpful in treating COVID-19 in its early stages, shortening the time the patient is sick and preventing the illness from becoming more severe. The drug is to be tested on 80 patients at four hospitals across Israel.

Arno's commentary

What is noticeable about this article is the cooperation between the nations. One news outlet reports the US sending coronavirus assistance to Italy, and on the Fox News website on 1 April, Tyler Olson writes: “Russia is sending a plane filled with medical equipment to the United States to help fight the coronavirus following a phone conversation between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin […] ‘Being aware of the serious epidemiological situation in America, the Russian side offered medical equipment and protective gear as assistance,’ the post quoted Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying.”

In summary, the coronavirus, an epidemic that literally swept the world, is another event contributing toward reaching the goal of global unity.
