It said, a streamlined and systematic mechanism for allocation of the support supplies received by India has been put into place, for effective distribution of the medical and other relief and support material.

A cell was created in the Union Health Ministry under Additional Secretary to coordinate the receipt and allocation of foreign COVID relief material as grants, aid and donations.

The Ministry said, 24 different categories of items numbering nearly 40 lakhs have been distributed to 86 Institutions in different States.

Major categories of equipment include BiPAP Machines, Oxygen Concentrators, Oxygen Cylinders, PSA Oxygen Plants, Pulse Oximeters, Remdesivir and PPE kits.
