France to Export Covid19 Medical Supplies to India

A massive Solidarity Mission planned. 

As India is facing adverse conditions now, other countries are trying to provide help in whichever way they can. Recently France announced that it will help India with medical supplies and other Covid19 essentials under their ‘Solidarity Mission.’

France will be sending medical supplies like oxygen generation plants, ventilators and other important supplies to India. This is to help the country that is battling coronavirus. This news was confirmed by the French Ministry for Europe and foreign affairs.

The mission will be handled by the Embassy of France in India and managed by the Crisis and Support centre. These essential medical supplies will be exported by air and also by sea. French ambassador to India Emmanuel Lenain confirmed that many companies have taken part in this solidarity mission. It will be a massive relief mission.

“This massive solidarity mission, initiated at Prez @EmmanuelMacron's request, is supported by French companies present in India and the EU. It aims to both respond to the emergency and boost the long-term resilience of India's healthcare system,” tweeted Lenain.

In a tweet shared under the hashtag #FranceStandsWithIndia Lenain added that “In the next few days, France will deliver to India not only immediate relief but also long-term capacities:

- 8 high capacity oxygen generators, each providing yearlong O2 for 250 beds

- Liquid O2 for 2000 patients for 5 days

- 28 ventilators & equipment for ICUs”

Even President Emmanuel Macron posted in solidarity with India. He shared a message on Facebook in Hindi and said that solidarity is at the heart of friendship between these two countries.

The second wave of coronavirus has put the country in a panic state. Every day India reports a high number of positive cases with an increase in the death toll. People even critical condition have to wait to get admitted as there are no beds in hospitals. Similarly, there is a shortage in oxygen cylinders and other Covid19 medical essentials.
