As the COVID-19 crisis in India continues, several countries have offered help to India in the fight against the disease.

President Joe Biden has said the United States is determined to help India as it faces an unprecedented COVID-19 crisis. In a tweet, Biden acknowledged last year’s assistance from India to America when the latter was facing a healthcare crisis.

The announcement was made after National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan spoke on the phone with Indian counterpart Ajit Doval, expressing deep sympathy for the people of India following the recent spike in COVID-19 cases.

Besides, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday her government was preparing emergency aid for India as the country struggles to cope with an explosion in coronavirus infections.

Moreover, UK PM Boris Johnson said that vital medical equipment is on its way from the UK to India to help stop the tragic loss of life from the virus, adding that the UK will continue to work closely with the Indian government during this difficult time.

Indian-American CEO of Microsoft Satya Nadella and his Google counterpart Sundar Pichai on Monday extended their support to India amid a record surge in coronavirus cases.

Taking to Twitter, Nadella said, “I am heartbroken by the current situation in India. I’m grateful the US government is mobilising to help. Microsoft will continue to use its voice, resources, and technology to aid relief efforts, and support the purchase of critical oxygen concentration devices.”

Meanwhile, keeping the current situation in mind, Pichai tweeted, “Devastated to see the worsening Covid crisis in India. Google & Googlers are providing Rs 135 crore in funding to @GiveIndia, @UNICEF for medical supplies, orgs supporting high-risk communities, and grants to help spread critical information.”


Meanwhile, prominent iconic buildings, including the Burj Khalifa, in the UAE were lit up with the tricolour to show solidarity with India as it grapples with a growing COVID-19 crisis.
