500,000 face masks to arrive this week in Canada to help fight global health pandemic

CANADA — Days after President Trump initially announced he will stop the export of 3 million face masks to Canada, Canadian officials confirmed Tuesday that the expected shipment of 500,000 face masks will arrive this week.

This following a weekend of constant communication between the two countries, as Canada stood firm that it will not retaliate against the U.S. on Trump’s announcement.

Trudeau said cooperation between the two allies continue, and limiting trade of medical supplies at this time could also hurt the U.S.

Canada’s death toll has risen to 345 as of Tuesday, with more than 17,000 cases confirmed positive of COVID-19.

More than half of Canada’s COVID-19 cases are in the province of Quebec, where a dad in Montreal has found an interesting hack to use old underwear as a face mask to help protect against the virus.

    3M World biggest manufacturer of FACE MASK, N95 is patented to them and they also have Factory in China. Task Force Virus ordered 55Million, the Task Force gave 3M the list of Hospitals to deliver the N95 and Surgical mask. Hospitals complain, they never RECEIVED any N95. Come to find out 3M sold their product to CANADA because their offer is HIGHER.3M CEO said they have to protect their distributors, and what they did was LEGAL, they had been exporting Face Mask to a foreign country. TRUMP issued an EXEC ORDER, US-made medical products should be sold first to US Hospitals. Yesterday 3M deliver 11.5million N95 and 26.5MSurgical Mask. FRANCE ordered 100M N95 from China, China has the right to stop the export because it is made in China by 3M.
    MACRON called Prez XI, said delivery on the way, but implement HUAWEI 5G. Just imagine the Chinese are using the US Corp to sell their Huawei-5G.
