U.S. President Donald Trump announced during a coronavirus briefing at the White House, Monday, April 6, in Washington, the end of a dispute with U.S. manufacturer 3M to supply millions of masks to medical professionals on the front lines of the fight against the virus.
READ MORE: The president said the company had agreed to deliver an additional 55.5 million masks each month.
Trump had invoked the Korean War-era Defense Production Act to prevent 3M from exporting masks abroad.
Trump also said that he had a "warm" conversation with former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on tackling the new coronavirus.
Additionally, Trump said he's sending his "best wishes" to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson who was moved to intensive care after his coronavirus symptoms dramatically worsened Monday.
Johnson was admitted to St. Thomas’ Hospital late Sunday, 10 days after he was diagnosed with COVID-19, the first major world leader to be confirmed to have the virus.
Trump is confronting the most dangerous crisis a U.S. leader has faced this century as the coronavirus spreads and a once-vibrant economy falters. The country now has more than 360,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and at least 10,792 deaths. (AP)
