    New Delhi: India has received the second batch of critical medical supplies, including protective gears, masks and ventilators, from China in a span of two days even as the Narendra Modi government is exporting equipment to other countries amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

    “The second batch of donation from Chinese charity organizations Jack Ma and Alibaba Foundations has arrived in Delhi today and been received by the Indian Red Cross Society. The donation includes protective clothes, masks, respirators and ventilators,” Sun Weidong, Ambassador of China to India, said in a tweet on Monday.

    In a second tweet, the envoy said Chinese state-owned companies are also providing assistance to their Indian partners.

    “The Chinese people will stand firmly with the Indian people on the fight against COVID19 and we’ll get through hard times together,” he added.

    India had received the first batch of medical items from China on 28 March, which was also donated to the Indian Red Cross Society by the Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation.

    Ma, Chinese billionaire and co-founder of tech giant Alibaba, has actively sent medical supplies to countries around the world over the last month.

    The Chinese supply comes at a time when India is facing a massive shortage of personal protective equipment, masks, gloves, goggles and ventilators — critical to fight the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors and nurses have been highlighting this, urging the government to ramp up production of these items on a war footing.

    I'm not sure if they would even appreciate such vital supplies, given the amount of hate, racism and vitriol spewed by them against China and the Chinese people.
