India: When it comes to the covid-19 severity, India ranks at number one position today, with almost 4 lakh+ cases being reported every day with 3000+ deaths. The condition is worsening day by day. The second wave has hit us all differently and the shortage of oxygen and other medical facilities have added to the woes.
Meanwhile, an American biopharmaceutical company lends a hand of support to India by sending vials of Remdesivir, which is used to treat the coronavirus. Earlier, it had sent almost 1.5 lakh plus Remdesivir vials and today 25,600 more vials came as a gift from them. The ministry of external affairs tweeted the same saying, “Grateful to @GileadSciences for the gift of another 25,600 vials of Remdesivir that arrived in Mumbai this morning”.
