US President Joe Biden’s tone now seems to be changing after he caused a worldwide furor over not helping India during the Corona crisis. He said after talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi that India was with the American people at the time of need and that America would stand with him during the worst public health crisis ever in India.
America will give many important items including ventilators
The White House has announced to provide India with other resources, including raw materials needed for the manufacturer of medicines, ventilators and covshield vaccines. Biden tweeted immediately after a phone conversation with PM Modi that India stood for us and we will stand for him. This is the second phone conversation between the two leaders after Biden took over as the 46th president of the US on 20 January.
45 minutes conversation with PM Modi
Biden said that today I spoke to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and pledged to give full support from the US to provide emergency assistance and resources in the fight against Covid-19. About 45 minutes were spent between the two leaders.
Will also supply oxygen
White House press secretary Jane Saki told reporters at her regular press conference that the president pledged to provide immediate assistance to the people of India who are struggling with the recent increase in cases of Covid-19. At India’s request, the US is exploring options to provide oxygen and related supplies.
America will send help going to other countries
He said that considering the emergency situation in India, we can change the route of ships going to help the countries in less need and hopefully soon we will get more information on this. He said that the Department of Defense is also considering providing field oxygen production systems that were used by the US in its field medical hospitals.
Preparations to provide field oxygen generators to India
Saki said that each unit can provide oxygen to 50 to 100 beds. The administration is also looking at options to provide oxygen concentrators and ventilators. The United States provided 200 ventilators to India last year and trained medical professionals on their use.
