IAF plane leaves for China with Medical assistance gift.

India on Wednesday sent an aircraft to evacuate its nationals from novel coronavirus-hit Wuhan and deliver a consignment of medical supplies to China. An Indian Air Force special flight carrying around 15 tons of medical assistance comprising masks, gloves and other emergency medical equipment has departed for Wuhan. This assistance has been provided in the wake of the Corona virus outbreak in China and the request by the neighbouring country to provide medical supplies. The Flight will bring back some Indian and foreign nationals from some of the neighboring countries. The flight of the IAF special flight could take place after a delay of almost a week because of delayed permission from China.

Earlier this month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had written to Chinese President Xi Jinping expressing the solidarity of India and also offered assistance “as a gift” to the affected country. The medical supplies will help augment China’s efforts to control the outbreak of this infection which has been declared as a Public Health Emergency by the World Health Organisation. The Indian flight, the third so far this year, will bring back Indians and nationals from some neighbouring countries that sought assistance in travelling to India in keeping with the country’s “neighbourhood first” policy.
