By Zoila Palma: Britain has sent 100 ventilators and 95 oxygen concentrators to India as the country is in the midst of a deadly second wave of COVID-19.

A recent surge in infections has pushed the death toll to almost 200,000.

In the past 24 hours only, India reported 323,144 new cases and the 2,771 new deaths took the total toll to 197,894.

In addition, Reuters reports that India will also receive 8 large oxygen-generating plants from France while Ireland, Germany, and Australia are dispatching oxygen concentrators and ventilators.

Hospitals in India are filled to capacity and several hospitals are reportedly out of oxygen.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization says it will deliver 4,000 oxygen concentrators to India.

And, with the US announcement that it will share 60 million doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine with other countries, India has already been assured by the US that the nation will be given priority.
