Ukraine to provide India with oxygen to fight COVID-19

The Ukrainian government is working on providing medical oxygen to India as part of the fight against coronavirus.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said this on the air of the 1+1 TV channel on Thursday evening, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The Ukrainian government has offered its support to the Indian government. So, like all countries, we asked India what kind of assistance from Ukraine could be provided to them. They gave up everything except oxygen, so Ukraine is ready to supply oxygen to India. These issues are being worked out technically, and we will be among the countries supporting India,” Shmyhal said.

The prime minister also commented on the coronavirus vaccination process in Ukraine. According to him, the situation has shown that more than 80,000 people can be vaccinated per day.

As reported, in recent weeks, India has faced a critical situation with the incidence of coronavirus - the country lacks hospital beds and medical oxygen.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, India has recorded 21,077,410 coronavirus cases. More than 230,000 people have died.
