The Indian government said it was trying to obtain medical gear, including masks and body coveralls, both from domestic firms and from countries like South Korea and China, to meet shortages, according to Reuters.

“A large number of Chinese manufacturers are working around the clock to help other countries save lives. Our sincerity and assistance is real. If problems occur in this process, the Chinese side will talk to relevant departments,” China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a news conference on Monday.

According to reports,  Chinese manufacturers had shown keen interest in providing protective health gear to India, lodging queries with Indian diplomatic missions in Shanghai and Beijing. China was emerging as a preferred supplier at this stage as new virus infections were slowing there and its factories were being pushed to reopen.
