US President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he would be willing to send ventilators to Iran to help treat coronavirus patients.

Iran currently has 80,868 confirmed coronavirus cases and the death toll stands at 5,031, according to the Ministry of Health.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had said on February 28 that the US offered Iran help to deal with the coronavirus outbreak, and that the country didn’t have solid healthcare infrastructure.

However, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei rejected on March 22 any US help and said that the US should focus on helping itself.
