Medical support to India from countries like the US, France, UAE, Denmark, Singapore Israel, and some EU nations has started to come in as New Delhi stood firm with the democratic world in the supply of much-needed drugs and vaccines.

On Monday, 318 oxygen concentrators were dispatched from New York to India on a special Air India flight to New Delhi.

Indian Ambassador to the US Taranjit Singh Sandhu thanked both US Secretary of State Tony Blinken and Sullivan for their prompt response. "Thank you Sullivan for your reach out and support. We will fight the global pandemic through our collective action!" he said in a tweet.

He also praised US deputy secretary of state Wendy R Sherman for standing by India.

More than 141 million vaccine doses have been administered, including 995,288 in the previous 24 hours, according to the Union ministry of health and family welfare dashboard on Monday morning. Two vaccines that are being used currently include Oxford University-AstraZeneca shot, manufactured in India as Covishield by Pune-based Serum Institute of India (SII), and Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech's Covaxin, the country's only indigenous vaccine against the disease. A third shot, Russia's Sputnik V, was given emergency use authorisation earlier this month.

India on Sunday reported 352,991 new cases of coronavirus infection and 2,812 fatalities, taking the active cases for the first time above the 17-million mark.
