The first consignment of oxygen concentrators from Israel has arrived in New Delhi yesterday.
In his message, Israeli ambassador Ron Malka has said that more such flights will follow throughout this week, carrying emergency medical aid including thousands of group and individual oxygen generators, respirators, medications, and additional medical equipment.
He said, our friendship is strong and collaboration during the Covid-19 crisis will only make it stronger.
A task force was set up to gather support for Israel’s aid to India. Several private entities, Israeli companies, NGOs and the people of Israel came together to contribute towards this aid.
Israeli ambassador said, in the first outbreak of Covid-19 in Israel, India mobilized to assist Israel, and within this framework approved the air delivery of masks, gloves, and raw materials for medications to Israel. India also helped arrange the repatriation of Israeli citizens.
