Indian Ambassador Pavan Kapoor tweeted and expressed gratitude towards great support at the tough times from Saudi Arabia.
Although the country has banned international flights coming from India due to worse covid conditions, UAE has not stopped supporting India. Oxygen concentrators and generators will be sent to India from UAE. Around 80 metric tons of liquid oxygen has been supplied to the country from Saudi Arabia for which Gautam Adani has expressed gratitude.
Thank you @IndianEmbRiyadh. Indeed, actions speak louder than words. We are on an urgent mission to secure oxygen supplies from across the world. This first shipment of 4 ISO cryogenic tanks with 80 tons of liquid oxygen is now on its way from Dammam to Mundra. (1/3) https://t.co/BLZ0SbQ499 pic.twitter.com/lFKnx0hIhX

World Unites To Support India At Tough Times
The conditions are worse due to lack of oxygen availability, ventilators, and other crucial medical equipment and it has raised concerns among not only the general public and government but also globally. To meet the demands, India is looking for global support to which many nations like Saudi Arabia, Australia, Germany, France, and Singapore, have extended support.
The United Kingdom and the US are also helping the country with ventilators, oxygen generators, personal protective equipment, and drug supplies. However, the US has banned the supply of raw vaccine materials earlier but according to Raja Krishnamoorthi who is a member of Coronavirus Crisis committee, US has made commitment to send all necessary raw materials for the vaccine.
The Biden Administration’s commitment to export raw materials needed for life-saving vaccines to India is an essential first step, but we must double down by also shipping AstraZeneca vaccine doses, oxygen concentrators, and other supplies in our stockpiles not being used. pic.twitter.com/YaZrGXOwze
