A England The government on Sunday said it would send another 1,000 fans to India as India’s healthcare system boosted its support as it struggles to cope with the rise in COVID-19 cases.
India has reported more than 300,000 daily cases for more than 10 consecutive days, making hospitals, mortuaries and crematoria heavier.
The British government had previously agreed to send 600 medical devices, including ventilators and oxygen concentrators.
“This support will help address some of India’s most pressing needs, especially patients’ urgent need for oxygen,” Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb said in a statement. “We are determined to help our Indian friends in their time of need.”

Other countries including United States, Germany and Pakistan are also providing support as the number of daily outbreaks in India has reached 392,488 and the total death toll is over 215,000.
Despite the health crisis, the Modi government is reluctant to impose a national blockade, but almost 10 Indian states and union territories have imposed some form of control.
