OREANDA-NEWSRussia, if necessary, is ready to help the United States in the fight against a new coronavirus. This is stated in a statement circulated on Tuesday by Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov.

"The speculation about the failure of our diagnostic system is unacceptable. Moreover, from the lips of commentators who position themselves as experts in the field of healthcare, the diplomat emphasized. Our test kits showed their high quality in China and Iran and were transferred to Italy". "Ordinary Americans should know that Russia will be ready to help, if necessary, and the United States, as has repeatedly offered assistance in putting out fires in California", he said.

A number of American media are trying to switch public attention from the situation with coronavirus in the USA to the situation in Russia. This is stated in the statement of the ambassador. According to Johns Hopkins University, which makes calculations based on data from federal and local authorities, more than 55 thousand cases of coronavirus infection were recorded in the United States, more than 790 people died.
