South Korea to provide coronavirus testing materials to the U.S.

BY ASSOCIATED PRESS MARCH 25, 2020 4:31 AM EDT

(SEOUL, South Korea) ó South Korea says it plans to provide coronavirus testing materials to the United States in response to President Donald Trumpís request for help.

Jeong Eun-kyeong, director of South Koreaís Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the country is willing to send chemical reagents used to extract genetic material during COVID-19 tests, but at a level that doesnít affect its own testing capacity.

She didnít provide a detailed estimate on the size of supplies that could be shipped to the United States.

The office of South Korean President Moon Jae-in earlier said Trump during a telephone conversation between the leaders asked whether South Korea could send medical equipment and supplies to help the United States cope with its outbreaks.

2. Republicans have always measured the US's standing in the world

in terms of weapons of war against human enemies and overall income and wealth without taking into account the income gap.

I think it's long past the time to reset the parameters as to what defines "greatest".
