In accordance with, Indonesia has gifted 14,00 Oxygen concentrators to the country through the Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS).

In a statement given by Indonesian consulate general in Mumbai said,"As a form of support and solidarity towards India, who has shown great composure against COVID-19, the Government and the people of the Republic of Indonesia sent 1,400 units of oxygen cylinders through Indian Red Cross Society."
