    That is great about the shipment of personal protective equipment!! Thank you very much!! How about ventilators??? We WILL need them, probably a LOT. The territory has some of the highest rates of obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure in the world. If it spreads here, we will have many many severe cases and need many ventilators.
