Docsun Biomed Covid Report On India's Fight Against COVID-19

By: WHO and CDC
JHUBEI CITY, Taiwan - July 26, 2021 - PRLog -- Countries across the WHO European Region are contributing to global efforts to send urgent life-saving supplies to India, following the rapid resurgence of COVID-19 in the country, which has placed unprecedented strain on the health system. Critical equipment such as oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders, electric syringe pumps, and therapeutics have been arriving to reinforce efforts to treat patients and save lives.

The rise in cases in India shows that while in some countries, infections appear to be decreasing or under control, COVID-19 continues to pose a global threat that requires cooperation across borders and global solidarity in our response.

Contributing countries

Italy has sent an emergency medical team (EMT), an oxygen production plant and oxygen cylinders to India, while Uzbekistan recently delivered 100 oxygen concentrators. In addition, the Russian Federation has flown in oxygen concentrators, ventilators and other medical supplies; a special cargo flight from France brought in 28 tonnes of medical equipment; and Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom are providing ventilators.

WHO support

In addition to individual countries' support, WHO is distributing critical equipment and supplies to help India meet the most urgent needs. This includes 4000 oxygen concentrators, personal protective equipment, mobile field hospitals and laboratory supplies. The WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia already released 650 000 swabs and laboratory supplies in April, while 1.25 million medical respirator masks were delivered on 3 May.

No one is safe anywhere until everyone is safe

The mobilization of critical COVID-19 supplies into India is an example of the global solidarity that is required to address a global threat.

India is reporting the highest number of cases in the world, representing over 45% of new cases reported globally in the past week. As of 3 May, India has reported 20 million COVID-19 cases and almost 219 000 deaths.

Use all measures available to reduce transmission

While new reported COVID-19 cases, hospitalization and deaths have declined in the European Region, the threat of resurgence remains as long as the virus is circulating anywhere and there are sufficient vulnerable people to sustain transmission.

Countries must continue to reduce transmission using all measures available. Public health and social measures such as physical distancing, the wearing of masks, ventilating indoors and avoiding crowded spaces must remain the backbone of any response.
