Covid-19: First batch of medical assistance leaves South Korea for India | India News


INCHEON: South Korea’s first batch of medical assistance left the city of Incheon on Sunday to help India fight the Covid-19 pandemic that has put the country’s medical infrastructure to the test.
“A friend in need is a friend indeed. India and the Republic of Korea, as special strategic partners, are such friends with each other. The first shipment of oxygen cylinders, concentrators and negative pressure carriers left Incheon for India today,” the Indian Embassy in Seoul said in a tweet.

India is currently grappling with a second wave of Covid-19 that has swept across the country, depleting the country’s healthcare infrastructure and overburdening frontline medical workers.
Several countries around the world, including the UK, Russia, and the US, have extended their support to India as it continues to grapple with increasing needs for healthcare infrastructure.
India reported 4,03,738 new Covid-19 cases and more than 4,000 related deaths in the last 24 hours. With this, the accumulated national contagion count rose to 2,22,96,414, the union health ministry reported Sunday morning.
