OPPO India has shared a note on its official Twitter handle pledging that the company will donate 1000 oxygenators and 500 breathing machines worth Rs 4.3 crores to the Indian Red Cross Society and the Government of Uttar Pradesh to help in fighting against the life-threatening virus. OPPO also claimed that these machines will be provided to the hospitals where the need is high.

As a token of respect, OPPO is also donating 5000 units of OPPO Band Style worth Rs 1.5 crore to front line warriors of the Delhi police and Greater Noida Authority to help them monitor their health as they serve others.

Just in case you don’t know, the total cases of COVID-19 in India has crossed 1.73 crores today, but don’t get panic because out of these 1.43 crore people are already recovered and 28lakh cases are currently active. While on a sad note the death toll has risen to 1.95 lakh as per The Indian Express report.

The Ministry of Home Affairs is claiming that the country is having enough oxygen supply but the issue is with transportation. However, it doesn’t seem that transportation is a very big issue that can not be resolved by the Indian government. MHA is assuring that there is no point in creating a panic situation for oxygen and it would be delivered to everyone. But the rise in the death toll is expressing altogether a different story. Let’s see how the central and state government is going to resolve the oxygen issue.
