Prime Minister Modi has been holding a series of telephonic conversations with world leaders assuring India’s support in the fight against the coronavirus crisis. While several countries have banned the export of medical supplies in the view of domestic requirements, India has continued assisting foreign nations in a show of solidarity.
Last month, India sent a large medical relief team to assist health authorities of the Maldives to deal with the evolving situation of the novel coronavirus. Recently, New Delhi sent a rapid response team to Kuwait comprising 15 Indian doctors and health care professionals to provide medical assistance in testing and treatment of the afflicted persons and training their personnel.
