The government of India has provided PCR kits to Nepal. India’s Ambassador to Nepal, Vinay Mohan Kwatra, called on Minister for Health and Population Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal on Sunday and handed over 30,000 kits to the latter.
On the occasion, in his brief statement, the Indian Ambassador said though assistance provided by the India government and people there was smaller in quantity, it would obviously be a help in promoting the testing coverage in Nepal.
The Minister acknowledged the medical assistance by India during the crisis.
Prior to this, India had donated 23 tonnes of medicines to Nepal to face the common health challenge caused by COVID-19. In a video conference, the Prime Minister of India had pledged assistance to the SAARC nations to fight the virus two months back.
