USAID said the first shipment consisted of 440 oxygen cylinders and regulators donated by California. In addition, USAID is sending 960,000 rapid test kits to detect coronovirus on this first flight, which will help prevent the spread of Kovid-19. In addition, 100,000 N95 masks have been sent to protect health workers in the fight against the epidemic. The White House said that during the current pandemic, thousands of Americans have been mobilized to provide oxygen equipment and other essentials to Indian hospitals in Indian state governments, private companies, NGOs, and around the country.
