US Congresswoman Writes Letter To Prez Joe Biden Urges Her Speed ​​Of Covid Aid In India

In his letter, Ross also thanked Biden for ordering the delivery of goods worth more than USD 100 million to provide emergency care in India.

New Delhi: North Carolina Congresswoman, Deborah Ross in a letter to Joe Biden urged him to accelerate US assistance to India in terms of oxygen cylinders, ventilators, BiPAP machines and surplus vaccines. Observing that the US must also work to ensure vaccines are accessible in India, the Congresswoman welcomed recently announced plans to make available sources of raw materials to help the country manufacture more vaccines.

In his letter, Ross also thanked Biden for ordering the delivery of goods worth more than USD 100 million to provide emergency care in India.

“Over the past few weeks, I have heard about the elements that threaten the health and safety of family members in India. They are worried that their loved ones will join those who are unable to get oxygen or seek the care they need in frustrated hospitals and the health care system that is about to collapse, Congresswoman Deborah Ross wrote in a letter to Biden, according to PTI.

The letter comes after Indian and American citizens in North Carolina expressed their concern over the status of Covid in India to him as they represented the Second State of the State. From oxygen and protective equipment (PPE) systems to rapid diagnostic and therapeutic testing, US support for India is a 70-year agreement between the two countries, says a letter to Biden.

“Helping India to cope with this latest wave is benefiting our country, as this epidemic will not end anywhere. As India continues to fight this outbreak, I hope you will consider providing more deployment of oxygen cylinders, oxygen concentrators, oxygen-producing plants, remdesivir, tocilizumab, and respiratory / BiPAP equipment, Ross said. India, he said, is in dire need of health care, especially oxygen and oxygen equipment. Pictures and stories of patients in desperate need of oxygen without turning point put the human face in the world’s urgent need for these machines, he added

She urged Biden to share with India surplus doses of vaccines purchased by the US as soon as possible. ”I also understand that India is eager to domestically produce high-quality US vaccines, and I hope that you work with the private sector to assess how the US can best support India in this effort, she said.

Ross said as long as COVID-19 continues in India, there is a possibility of the emergence of new varieties that could be a major threat to vaccinated Americans. “We must all do our part to stop this virus worldwide. I would also like to thank you for your commitment so far in supporting our partner India through the COVID-19 crisis, and look forward to continuing to work with you to further US-India relations, Ross said.

Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden has set a new vaccine target to bring at least one gun to 70 percent of American adults on July 4 as he battles the pressing issue of overcoming “skeptics” and those not encouraged to be vaccinated.
