Chinese oxygen generators, Pakistani ambulances, Indians’ choice in times of crisis!
China News Service, April 26 (Kong Qingling) India, with a population of 1.3 billion, is caught in a cruel epidemic “storm”. In the past few days, the new crown virus and its mutant strains have infected more than 300,000 people every day , “Swallowing” this South Asian country.
In the face of a tsunami-like epidemic, India’s medical system has collapsed. Wards, oxygen, and cremation equipment are in a hurry. The remains of the deceased from the new crown are forced to burn in the street, shocking the world.
The Indian government had to ask for help from the international community, and because of the “indifferent response” from the United States, the anti-American sentiment among the Indian people was once soaring. The United States, which could not bear the pressure of public opinion, finally agreed to take action.
On the other hand, in order to alleviate the “emergency”, Indian start-up companies urgently purchased oxygen generators from neighboring China. China and Pakistan selflessly extended a helping hand to India at a critical moment.
The spread of the epidemic in India has led to an oxygen supply crisis in many hospitals. Many medical staff, staff and ordinary people have brought oxygen cylinders to oxygen refueling stations. The picture shows a worker filling medical oxygen cylinders in a facility on the outskirts of Chennai.

The choice of Indians in critical moments!
Under the epidemic situation in India, the “ground shakes” and the spread of the virus is accelerating. It has set a global single-day record of confirmed diagnoses for 4 consecutive days. Worse still, this has not reached the peak. By the middle of May, this terrible number may become “500,000 diagnoses every day.”
In one of the most severely affected areas, the capital New Delhi, the lockdown has been extended. The local hospitals have long been overwhelmed, and there is a severe shortage of medical oxygen and medicines. The families of patients have sought help on social media.
The Indian government is also using military planes and trains to transport supplies and medical personnel to the “hardest-hit areas”. However, it is still difficult to cope with the “overwhelming” epidemic situation and can only ask the international community for emergency help.
Some countries in the world have taken the initiative to offer assistance to India. As a close neighbor of India, China has also continuously sent friendly signals to India. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said on the 23rd that China firmly supports the Indian government and people in fighting the epidemic, and is willing to provide support and assistance according to the needs of the Indian side, and is maintaining communication with the Indian side on this.
Currently, global aid is pouring to India. India has airlifted cryogenic oxygen tanks from Singapore; the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Russia, and Saudi Arabia are also sending aid materials to India.
The Prime Minister of Pakistan also expressed the attitude of uniting with India to fight the epidemic. The country’s charity, the Abdul Sattar Eddy Foundation, also sent a letter to Indian Prime Minister Modi, providing 50 ambulances and first responders.
There are also some Indian start-up companies that have purchased 500 oxygen generators from China through crowdfunding, and they are expected to be put into use on April 28. The founders of these startups launched the “Mission Oxygen” (Mission Oxygen) to import oxygen generators.
They mentioned that they have purchased 500 oxygen generators from China, which may be used in hospitals before April 28, and plan to order 500 more.
The United States in the “vaccine spring”,
Treat India in the “winter of the epidemic” like this
As the international community is concerned about the epidemic in India and has offered to lend a helping hand, the United States worships The change in the attitude of the Deng government is intriguing.
At first, when Indian officials asked the United States for help, a US government spokesperson said that the United States focused on controlling the country’s epidemic and prioritized vaccinating the American people.
In fact, the United States has ample vaccines, and it is fully capable of helping other countries. The US “Washington Post” pointed out on the 24th that only 1.4% of people in India have been fully vaccinated, and overcrowded hospitals are facing major hypoxia problems. At this time, Americans are “enjoying the spring of sufficient vaccines.”

The United States, which is “enjoying spring”, chose to pretend not to see the “winter” of India. Earlier this week, US senators, congressmen, think tank experts and influential Indian-Americans had long been aware of the severe epidemic in India and knew that the country was facing a shortage of oxygen and vaccines, but Biden administration officials chose to remain silent. .
The United States did not expect that their indifference angered the Indian people.
Recently, the anti-American and anti-Western sentiments of Indian netizens on social media have surged. There have been more and more criticisms against the Biden administration, accusing the United States of hoarding new crown vaccines, paying too much attention to patents, and turning a deaf ear to the situation in countries severely affected by the epidemic, such as India and Brazil.
Seeing more and more criticisms and accusations from the outside world, the Biden administration, which could not bear the weight of public opinion, finally stated that it would provide assistance to India. At this time, Biden remembered that India had provided assistance to the United States in the early days of the new crown epidemic. I don’t know what the Modi government thinks of this “big brother”?
