UAE Sends Oxygen Containers to India

UAE transported oxygen containers to India through an Indian military aircraft for use in its hospitals. According to media reports in India, the aircraft flew six empty cryogenic containers from Dubai on Monday,

The containers will be used to store liquid oxygen that will go on to be used to help patients with Covid-19 to breathe.

India set a world record for daily coronavirus case numbers for a fifth day in a row on Monday, with 352,991 new cases.

Surgency in the number of cases resulted in a shortage of hospital beds, oxygen and medicines, leading to scenes of people dying outside treatment centres and overwhelmed crematoriums and cemeteries as the total number of deaths is more than 195 thousand.

“We stand with India in the face of the difficult conditions of the epidemic and we are guided in our positions and stands by our Islamic and humanitarian values," Dr Anwar Gargash, Diplomatic Adviser to President Sheikh Khalifa, said Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in a tweet on Monday.
