Chinese business demonstrates its support to India, a country faced with the deepest-ever health crisis. At least 40,000 oxygen generators ordered by the Indian side were shipped by the Chinese companies.
China’s ambassador to India, Sun Weidong, said that his country is striving to deliver the required medical materials to India as soon as possible. In fact, China was one of the first nations to offer support and medical aid to India and to put concrete actions into practice.
Commenting on the activity in April, the ambassador tweeted on Thursday that China has supplied more than 5,000 ventilators to India. He added that China will continue to provide support within its capacity to the Indian side to save more lives.
The Chinese diplomat also replied to transportation concerns on Twitter, saying that air routes from China to India are operating normally and in the past two weeks, 61 freight flights operated from China to India.
“We’ve provided convenience in customs clearance & transportation for India to transport medical supplies from cities in China. Will continue to ensure smooth functioning of export channel of materials to India,” Sun wrote.
As of Saturday, India’s coronavirus tally reached 19,164,969, with a single day spike of 401,993 cases. As the health ministry noted, China, France, Germany and the US have pledged to send urgent medical aid.
