Health Minister Vaughan Gething said:

“COVID-19 is a global threat and as such it is right that we are part of the global response, supporting other nations.

We have worked closely with the UK Government and the Government of India on the logistics in arranging for these supplies to be transported to India and distributed to the hospitals where they are needed most.”

Health Minister Vaughan Gething and Chair of the Wales branch of the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO) Professor Keshav Singhal visited the NHS Wales National Distribution Centre on Monday (10 May) to inspect the supplies.

Flights are being arranged by the Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office.
