Indian Defence Medical Team sent to Maldives to help deal with Corona virus Pandemic

Indian Defence Medical Team sent to Maldives to help deal with pandemic Corona virus: Indian Govt has sent a 14-member medical team from defence forces, including doctors and paramedics, to Maldives to assist in dealing with the Corona virus pandemic.

The request for medical assistance was sent from the Maldives Government. The defence medical team will stay in the Maldives for some time.

The personnel who have been sent to the Maldives are from the Indian Army, Air Force and Navy. The team will help in setting up medical centres that can function as quarantine facilities for those who have been tested positive for corona virus.

The Central government had earlier received a request from the corona virus-affected Maldives for assistance with masks and protective gear. In recent times, this is the first-ever Indian medical team to go to another country. 

Other coronavirus-hit countries such as Bhutan, Iran, and Italy, too, have requested India for assistance with masks and protective gear.

"We have received requests from some of the countries in the neighborhood in terms of providing them assistance for masks and protective gear. Requests are under process. In February we had sent a consignment to China," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.
