In a bid to aid India in the fight against the ravaging effects of Covid-19, the Republic of Mauritius has donated medical equipment to the Asian nation, joining efforts with the general international community to support and render necessary assistance in India’s moment of emergency.

Mauritius’ donation consists of a shipment of 200 oxygen concentrators, sent to Mumbai. The oxygen concentrators will help to deal with and solve the shortage of oxygen available to India’s medical staff, which as a problem has seen India suffer Covid related injuries in recent weeks.

Covering the donation, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Mauritius, Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, noted that both nations are united in efforts against the virus while sending his thoughts and prayers to the citizens of India.

“Mauritius and India are united in the fight against Covid-19. Today the Republic of Mauritius has donated 200 oxygen concentrators to help medical staff in India treat people suffering from the virus. Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of India in these difficult times and my thoughts are with Prime Minister Modi and his government in this daunting fight against the Covid-19 virus” he said.

Helping India is one of Mauritius’ commendable efforts against Covid-19 as the African nation has done its bit to make a crucial contribution to the global fight against Covid-19 via the distribution of vaccines made in its Serum Institute of India and Bharat Biotech for Covaxin to many countries.
