The United Kingdom on Wednesday announced the sending of three oxygen production units to India, following the weekend’s first shipment of medical equipment to this country devastated by the Kovid-19 pandemic. But he has no additional vaccines to provide. The British government said in a statement, all three units, each the size of a sea container, can produce 500 liters of oxygen per minute.
“We are in their fight with our Indian friends against Kovid-19,” said Foreign Minister Dominic Rabb, for whom “international cooperation is more necessary than ever”. “This additional British assistance will make it possible to meet India’s current needs, particularly for oxygen,” he elaborated.
An explosion of worrisome epidemic
The first batch of oxygen concentrations and breathalysers from Britain arrived in India on Tuesday and a second batch of the same type is expected to arrive on Friday. A total of 495 oxygen concentrations and 200 respirators will be distributed by the total colonial power, London. When contacted by AFP, the Foreign Ministry has not yet specified when the oxygen production units will arrive.
India is seeing its health system being uprooted due to the flood of patients who face shortage of hospital beds, oxygen reserves and life-saving medicines. The explosion of cases is particularly attributed to a new version and to large-scale political and religious ceremonies. According to official figures, coronovirus deaths exceeded 200,000 on Wednesday, with more than 3,000 deaths occurring in 24 hours for the first time.
How soon does AstraZeneca dose?
The United States has announced that it is sending overseas – and possibly to India – 60 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine developed by the United Kingdom. London, however, is not in a “for the moment” position to offer additional doses to India, Health Minister Matt Hancock said at a press conference on Wednesday.
