Mainichi wrote that it learned from multiple GOJ sources on Tuesday that the government is making arrangements to purchase about 1,000 ventilators from the United States in preparation for the possibility of a “second wave” of coronavirus infections. According to the sources, the U.S. side told Japan that General Motors had begun mass producing ventilators and could sell them to Japan if necessary. The paper alleged that Prime Minister Abe decided to purchase the medical devices during a teleconference with President Trump on May 8. Asahi published a similar story yesterday.
