1 million rapid tests for COVID-19, 545 oxygen concentrators, more than 1.6 million antiviral masks, and other equipment were delivered to India.
The US Air Force has already made four flights to deliver medical equipment and other necessary assistance to India in connection with the coronavirus outbreak in that country. Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby announced this on Wednesday.
“Today, the fourth USAF plane landed in India with a cargo of essential medical supplies and other equipment,” he said. According to him, four planes delivered 1 million rapid tests to diagnose coronavirus infection, 545 oxygen concentrators, more than 1.6 million antiviral masks, and other equipment.
Kirby added that the US continues to contact India about providing other necessary assistance.
In late April, the White House announced that the United States would soon provide more than $100 million in aid to fight the spread of the new coronavirus in India, which is facing an outbreak of infection.
