US to supply emergency relief shipment worth $100 mn.

India is going to have its first emergency relief shipment, which is expected to arrive on a US military transport aircraft from Travis Air Force Base. It will constitute 440 oxygen cylinders and regulators donated by the state of California. Along with this US is also aiding us with raw materials for vaccines so as to back India’s COVID-19 response in the face of a devastating second wave. The flight is also going to carry 960,000 rapid diagnostic tests and 100,000 N95 masks provided by US AID.


“Just as India sent assistance to the United States when our hospitals were trained early in the pandemic, the United States is determined to help India in its time of need,” the White House said in a statement. 


On 26 April there was a phone conversation between President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and therefore the aid is being provided in line with the pledge on call. The support also looks forward to address a severe shortage of oxygen which has been blamed for many deaths in recent days. The raw materials are also being provided which will help in making the Covishield vaccine and it is said that India Will be able to manufacture more than 20 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
