NEW DELHI: The first batch of 150 oxygen concentrators and 500 oxygen cylinders from Taiwan has arrived in New Delhi on Sunday (May 2, 2021). Expressing strong friendship with India in its fight against a new wave of Covid 19 pandemic, Taiwan is delivering critical medical supplies to India.

Taiwanese government said that the following batches of medical equipment will be airlifted to India soon. “Taiwan is committed to providing necessary assistance to the people of India in time of need, it added.

In a statement released online, it said, “On behalf of the Government of Taiwan, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in India wishes to reaffirm the friendly bilateral relations between Taiwan and India. Taiwan’s deployment of medical supplies is a testament to the close collaboration and partnership across multiple agencies on both sides. It also reflects the robust relief efforts and contributions made by the Government and the people of Taiwan to bring humanitarian relief to India. While the contribution is modest, we hope that it will bring comfort and relief to the patients in need and ease the burden on the healthcare workers who are working tirelessly to fight the pandemic.”

President Tsai Ing-wen on April 27 conveyed solidarity with India and expressed deep concern about India’s situation. As India logged a record-breaking daily surge of coronavirus infection for consecutive days, Tsai said that Taiwan “stand with India” during this difficult time while offering to provide help.

Earlier, a plane from the US also landed in India on Saturday night with 1000 oxygen cylinders, regulators and other medical equipment. Many countries have come forward to help India in the battle against the second wave of the coronavirus. Countries across the world continue to send emergency relief supplies to India which is reeling under acute shortages of oxygen and other life-saving drugs and medical equipment.
