After Requesting Anti-Malarial Drug Hydroxychloroquine, Trump Sends $2.9 Million Aid To India’s Fight Against Covid-19

The Donald Trump administration has provided $2.9 million to aid India's fight against the coronavirus disease.

In an official statement issued by United States (US) Embassy in New Delhi on Monday (6 April), the US government said that the pandemic financial support was granted to India through the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

The relief is in addition to $1.4 billion in health assistance, and nearly $3 billion in total assistance, that the US has provided to India over the last 20 years, the embassy said.

The statement comes a day after President Trump called Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting him to supply the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine that is being used to treat Covid-19 patients and as prophylactic by health care workers. The government has imposed a ban on export of the drug since the coronavirus outbreak hit India.

The US as of now has the highest number of the novel coronavirus infection cases in the world. On Monday, with over 337,000 cases of infections, the US was nearing 10,000 deaths. Relatively, India has managed to contain the pandemic with 118 deaths and over 4,300 cases of infections.
