President Donald Trump's thanks Vietnam for supporting the US on his Twitter account.

“This morning, 450,000 protective suits landed in Dallas, Texas. This was made possible because of the partnership of two great American companies—DuPont and FedEx—and our friends in Vietnam. Thank you!”, Trump twitted on April 8.

This is the first of the two initial shipments of DuPont protective suits made in Vietnam. The suits will be sent to the US Strategic National Stockpile to address the urgent need for protective gear for frontline health workers tackling the COVID-19 pandemic in the US.

The US and Vietnamese governments have cooperated extensively in the COVID-19 fight. Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have been collaborating with Vietnamese officials in monitoring and responding to the complex development of the COVID-19.

US Ambassador to Vietnam Dan Kritenbrink stated: “Over the past 20 years, the US has invested more than US$706 million in health assistance for Vietnam, and over the past decade has provided substantial technical and financial support to prevent, detect, and respond to emerging and serious infectious diseases.

"These investments by our two countries are paying off at this critical time."

"The connections established between American and Vietnamese health professionals have been instrumental as we fight this epidemic together.”

“This shipment will help protect health care professionals working on the front lines against COVID-19 in the US and demonstrates the strength of the US-Vietnam partnership," Ambassador Kritenbrink added.

The US had recorded more than 423,000 COVID-19 infections as of April 8, with nearly 14,500 deaths.
