Biden, Harris assure India of all assistance to fight Covid-19; Greta asks global community to help
In order to help the deadly Coronavirus crisis, US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have assured India all kinds of possible assistance including providing medical supplies, equipment, etc.
In a tweet, Joe Biden said, "Just as India sent assistance to the United States as our hospitals were strained early in the pandemic, we are determined to help India in its time of need."
In another tweet, Kamala Harris said, "The US is working closely with the Indian government to rapidly deploy additional support and supplies during an alarming COVID-19 outbreak. As we provide assistance, we pray for the people of India —including its courageous healthcare workers."
The tweets by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the first reactions of top American leaders after the current outbreak of the Covid-19. On Sunday, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan discussed with Indian counterpart Ajit Doval following which the White House announced that they would be immediately sending medical assistance and equipment to save many lives in India. Many people who had been constantly criticising Biden's administration welcomed the decision.
Meanwhile, in a tweet, Swedish Climate Activist Greta Thunberg has called the humanitarian crisis brought on due to the unavailability of medical oxygen in India "heartbreaking." She even stressed that the global community must help India to tackle the spread of the Coronavirus infection.
She tweeted, "Heartbreaking to follow the recent developments in India. The global community must step up and immediately offer the assistance needed."
