The US will "donate" ventilators to India amid the global coronavirus pandemic as the countries jointly work on developing a badly-needed vaccine, President Donald Trump said Friday.


"I am proud to announce that the United States will donate ventilators to our friends in India. We stand with India and @narendramodi during this pandemic," he said on Twitter, suing the handle for the Indian prime minister.

Trump further stated that Washington and New Delhi "are cooperating" on developing a vaccine, adding "Together we will beat the invisible enemy!"

The US remains the country hardest-hit by the coronavirus pandemic with over a quarter of all deaths recorded worldwide and nearly one-third of all confirmed cases, according to a study being conducted by Johns Hopkins University.
