Dr. Fauci said, “It is clear that the situation in India is very serious.” He said, ‘When people are getting infected in such large numbers, not enough care is being taken for everyone, there is a shortage of beds, oxygen and other medical items in hospitals, then it becomes a very frustrating situation.

Dr. Fauci said that other countries of the world can help India by providing materials and personnel, such as the United States is providing oxygen cylinders, concentrators and generator units. He said that India often helps other countries in emergency situations.
