The World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Monday described India’s Covid-19 crisis as “beyond heartbreaking”. The organization is also sending staff and supplies to India in a help to fight the pandemic crises.

The WHO chief was quoted saying that it’s pleasing to see small declines in cases and deaths in several regions, ‘but many countries are still experiencing intense Covid-19 transmission, and the situation in India is beyond heartbreaking,’ according to news agency Reuters, as quoted by LiveMint. 

He also said that the WHO had transferred over 2,600 of its experts from various programmes, including polio and tuberculosis, to work with Indian health authorities to help respond to the Covid-19 pandemic, adding that help to India includes “thousands of oxygen concentrators, prefabricated mobile field hospitals and laboratory supplies”.
