With the hard-hitting second wave of Covid-19 pandemic in India and the surge in cases, UAE took another step towards providing medical assistance by delivering more than 5 lakh tablets of an antiviral drug Favipiravir.
Arindam Bagchi, spokesperson of Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) wrote on Twitter, “Further deepening our Comprehensive Strategic Partnership. Thank our close partner & friend UAE for gifting over 5 lakh Favipiravir Tablet.”
Earlier, the UAE had sent a consignment of cryogenic oxygen tanks and medical aid to support India through the crisis.
As of now, an overall seven ISO tankers comprising of 20 MT Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO) have been sent from United Arab Emirates (UAE) and was received at Mundra Port in Gujarat, along with a special cargo of medical aid which included 157 ventilators, 480 BiPAPs, and other medical supplies, and 18 cryogenic oxygen containers.
