India is still reeling under the devastating second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the prediction of a second wave, India surely could not fathom this level of impact. Within days, the counts reached staggering proportions, and India’s daily count of COVID-positive patients overtook even that of Brazil and the USA.
The healthcare system in the metro cities of the country was stretched beyond their capacity. With an increasing number of COVID patients requiring oxygen and ventilator support, there was a dire need for medical oxygen supply. In the initial days, several hospitals raised SOS alarms on social media for oxygen supply.
The crisis has prompted an outpouring of international support, offering to supply drugs, equipment, and oxygen to the country. The UAE was one of the first countries to provide unstinted support in India’s time of need.
