A planeload of desperately needed medical supplies arrived in New York from China on Sunday, the first in a series of flights over the next 30 days organized by the White House to help fight the coronavirus, a Trump White House official said.
Way back in 1986, in New York City, there was an ice skating facility known as the Wollman Rink that was badly in need of repair. The city had not only gone way over budget but when the renovations were done it still didn’t work right. No company, it seemed, could figure out how to fix the ice making problem, having spent $13 million dollars and six years in a vain attempt to get it working again. It rapidly became a national joke. Then Donald Trump stepped in and said he had the answer, and he did. In just 4 months time, Trump finished the job at a final cost 25% below the budget. He had done what New York City could not do for themselves. Now in 2020, he is doing it again.
What you will read about here in today’s article is truly spectacular, and proof that President Trump is absolutely in charge as much as any president could be during this coronavirus crisis. Trump has created something called ‘Project Airbridge‘, and it is the largest movement of medical supplies through the air in modern human history, perhaps larger even than supplies that were moved on D-Day during WWII. The first flight carrying it’s massive payload of 12 million gloves, 130,000 N95 masks, 17.6 surgical masks, 50,000 gowns, 130,000 hand sanitizer units, and 36,000 thermometers has already landed, and there are 50 more such flights that will take place over the next 30 days.
Why haven’t you heard about this amazing event? The fake news media is working overtime to make sure you don’t.
A Trump White House-led airlift in ‘Project Airbridge’ of urgently needed medical supplies arrives in New York City
FROM YAHOO NEWS: A commercial carrier landed at John F. Kennedy airport carrying gloves, gowns and masks for distribution in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, three hard-hit states battling to care for a crush of coronavirus patients.
The airlift is a product of a team led by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, which formed “Project Airbridge,” a partnership between large U.S. healthcare distributors such as McKesson Corp, Cardinal, Owens & Minor, Medline and Henry Schein Inc, and the federal government.
Representatives of those companies were to attend a White House meeting later on Sunday with President Donald Trump to discuss the effort, the official said.
The goal is to expedite the arrival of critical medical supplies purchased by the companies over the next 30 days, using planes instead of ships to reduce the shipping time.
“At President Trump’s direction we formed an unprecedented public-private partnership to ensure that massive amounts of masks, gear and other PPE will be brought to the United States immediately to better equip our health care workers on the front lines and to better serve the American people,” Kushner said in a statement.
Trump, accused of initially playing down the threat from the virus, has been searching for supplies to fill the mounting need for equipment to protect healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients. Medical workers across the country are clamoring for equipment to protect themselves from infection as they deal with the flood of virus victims.
The first plane, funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, carried 130,000 N-95 masks; nearly 1.8 million surgical masks and gowns, more than 10.3 million gloves; and more than 70,000 thermometers.
Atlas Air is proud to have supported @fema in delivering 130,000 N95 respirators, 1.8 million face masks and gowns, 10.3 million gloves, and over 70,000 thermometers. Thank you to our crews and ground staff for making this happen. #MissionCritical #Inittogether #AtlasStrong https://t.co/9Q2xQ6hYHX

FEMA will distribute most of the supplies to New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut with the rest going to nursing homes in the area and other high-risk areas across the country.
The flight from Shanghai, China, was the first of about 20 flights to arrive between now and early April, the official said. Additional flights will carry similar gear from China, Malaysia and Vietnam, the official said.
“It will be allocated based on need,” the White House official said.
Involved in the effort are the FEMA transportation task force as well as officials at both the U.S. embassy in China as well as the State Department’s East-Asia Pacific team, the official said. READ MORE

When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 13,862 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 149,000 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 14,800 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
