The United States is taking a fresh look at the delivery of relief packages to people who need them, as the country tries to stave off another coronaviruses pandemic.
The packages will now come from the U.S. Postal Service, which has been the main provider of relief supplies to the United States.
The U.N. says at least 6.5 million people in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Spain are without food, clean water and heat, and more than one in three have no access to clean drinking water.
About 80 per cent of those people are in Spain, Italy and France.
Some of the packages will be delivered in a convoy that will travel to countries where the pandemic is still raging.
The Canadian government has also set aside $250 million to help distribute relief packages, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised that Canada will have more than a million people on the ground by the end of the pandemics pandemic, which began in late March.
More to come.
