International assistance to tackle health decline in the country
This Thursday, the Government of India announced that it will receive oxygen equipment and medicines from more than 40 countries in the coming days as part of an international commitment to help combat the second corona virus experienced by the Government of India.
Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla told a news conference that India expects to “supply us with the most urgently needed supplies” of drugs, tons of liquid oxygen and oxygen-producing equipment from more than 40 countries.
With more than 1.35 billion people living in the country, the Secretary-General stressed that the supply of liquid oxygen is a priority, with more than 18 million infections today.
“We have seen the need for any equipment that can produce (distribute) oxygen, such as generators, concentrators, cryogenic tanks, transport equipment,” he added.
The oxygen network will be strengthened
The Secretary announced that the establishment of about 550 oxygen production plants coming from different parts of the world is planned to meet the current demand. In addition, “we are looking for more than 4,000 essential (…) oxygen concentrators, more than 10,000 oxygen cylinders, they are in short supply, and 17 cryogenic oxygen tanks, some of which have already arrived,” he added during his speech.
Although the country is a manufacturer of drugs such as Remdecivir or Dosilisumab, hospitals urgently need two antiviral drugs to treat patients who are more severely affected by the corona virus.
So, “we are trying to buy 400,000 doses of Remdeciver from Egypt and from the United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh and Uzbekistan,” he said.
India has focused all its efforts on the vaccine campaign
Similarly, the company that developed the antivirus Gilead will supply 450,000 doses to the Indian government, and 300,000 doses of Favibravir will come from Russia.
India now puts all hope in its ambitious vaccination campaign to end this crisis. More than 150 million volumes have been managed so far since the campaign began in January.
