India COVID Response
INDIA AND COVID-19
CALL TO ACTION

In recent days, India has been seeing record numbers of COVID-19 infections. By mid May, some estimate this figure could reach 800,000 to 1 million a day (excluding undetected cases, which could conservatively be between 10 and 20 times more). Many hospitals have been turning new patients away due to a lack of oxygen supplies.

There is an immediate need for oxygen-related equipment (including oxygen generators, concentrators, cylinders, oxymeters, ventilators, cryogenic tanks and tankers), critical medicines, and other emergency supplies (including ambulances, makeshift hospitals, and PPE).
