The European Union has extended a helping hand amid the second wave of Corona infection in India. The European Union said on Tuesday that in the coming days it will help its member countries with oxygen, medicine and essential equipment. Due to more than 3 lakh corona cases coming every day in the country for a week, resources have been depleted.
A statement issued by the European Union said, “In the coming days, the EU member country will supply the much needed oxygen, medicine and equipment to India.” Countries in the European Union are 700 oxygen concentrators, 1 oxygen generator, 365 ventilators from Ireland, 9000 vials of Remdesvir from Belgium, 80 oxygen concentrators and 75 oxygen cylinders coming from Romania. 58 ventilators from Luxembourg, 5,503 vile ramdescivir from Portugal, 20 thousand liters of oxygen will come every week and 120 ventilators are coming from SWED.
The European Union states, “This help is being provided by EU members to deal with the current state of the epidemic in India.” It has also been said that other countries of the EU will also help in the coming days. There will also be help from countries like France and Germany.
Commissioner Janis Lenarik of Crisis Management said that the EU is ready to help India in this hour. This help from the EU has come at a time when the second wave of Corona in the country is creating havoc. There was a slight drop in Corona infection figures in the last 24 hours. On Monday, 323,144 new cases were reported in the country. With this, the total number of corona infections in the country increased to 17,636,307.
This is the sixth consecutive day when more than 3 lakh cases have been reported in the country. There is a shortage of oxygen supply and ICU beds in many states. According to the Central Government’s data, 14,556,209 patients in India have defeated Corona, so 1 lakh 97 thousand 894 patients have lost their lives.
