Nigeria, we just sent a thousand. We have various countries – France, Spain, we have a lot going to Italy, we have a lot going to probably 15, 18 countries. They’re calling us. We have the capacity to do this. Nobody else did.
“So, every state now has more than they need and our stockpile is totally full. We have a tremendous amount.
“So, now we’re really helping other countries where they’re losing a lot of people because they don’t have ventilators.”
