- Trump ordered on Saturday – urged Modi to deliver a hydroxychloroquine drug; Seen threatening on monday
- The Ministry of External Affairs responded on Tuesday – hydroxychloroquine and paracetamol will be sent to the countries most affected by the corona
India finally allowed the export of hydroxychloroquine. The government on Tuesday made it clear that hydroxychloroquine will be exported to some countries. However, will give priority to the needs of our country. Care will also be taken on how many cases are there in other countries. India’s statement came 6 hours after the US threatening India of dire consequences. In the early hours of Indian time, President Donald Trump had threatened that action would be taken if India did not send the medicine despite his personal order.
Hydroxychloroquine is a chronic and inexpensive drug for the treatment of malaria in India. Amid growing infection of Corona, the country’s health workers are using this drug as anti-viral. This led the government to ban the export of hydroxychloroquine last month. NASA scientists also said that anti-malarial hydroxychloroquine was effective in fighting corona.
‘I am surprised by India’s decision’
Trump said strict action could be taken if India does not lift the ban on hydroxychloroquine exports. I see no reason why India has stopped the US drug order? America has good relations with India. Surprised that despite all this, the government there is unable to take a decision on sending medicines to us. On Saturday, US President Donald Trump ordered India to send a consignment of hydroxychloroquine to combat the disease.
External Affairs Ministry answers – We care for our people
State Department spokesman Anurag Shrivastava said, “India has always cooperated with the international community and has better relations. People of India are living in many countries, they were evacuated due to Corona. On the basis of humanitarianism, the government decided that hydroxychloroquine and paracetamol would also be sent to the neighboring countries that are expecting us to help. “
