Russia sends critical aid to Italy, as Merkel goes into self-quarantine
The Duran Quick Take: Episode 507.
The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the decision by Russia to send Italy much-needed aid to help the country battle against the deadly coronavirus outbreak that has killed over 5,400 people.
The Russian Defense Ministry said four military planes carrying virologists, epidemiologists, medical equipment and supply of pharmaceuticals will arrive at the Pratica di Mare Air Base some 30 kilometers southwest of the capital Rome.
EU leaders have restricted exports of critical medical supplies to Italy as they prepare their own health-care systems for an onslaught of COVID-19 infections. Meanwhile German Chancellor Angela Merkel has gone into self-quarantine.
