Indian Navy ship carrying medical aid from Kuwait reaches Mumbai Port

Indian Naval Ship INS Shardul, carrying medical aid from Kuwait and Qatar to tackle ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, reached Mumbai Port on Thursday, June 24.

The Ship carried aid including 7,640 filled Oxygen Cylinders, two ISO containers of 20 MT of Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO) each and 15 Oxygen Concentrators.

Earlier in May, a Kuwaiti ship arrived at Nhava Sheva Port in Mumbai, carrying three semi-trailers of Liquid Medical Oxygen (25 metric tonnes each) and 1000 oxygen cylinders on board, to help India combat the coronavirus pandemic. External Affairs Ministry (EAM) spokesperson Arindam Bagchi expressed gratitude to the government of Kuwait for the much-needed oxygen to help ease pressure on the health infrastructure of the country.

India reported 54,069 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours and the daily positivity rate dropped to 2.91 per cent, according to the Union Health Ministry. The daily positivity rate has been below 5 per cent for 17 consecutive days.
