On June 3, 2021, the Embassy of Japan, represented by First Secretary Mr. Miyamoto, handed over 160 oxygen generators from the Government of Japan to the Ministry of Health and Population of Nepal at the Tribhuvan International Airport.
On behalf of His Excellency, Ambassador Mr. KIKUTA Yutaka, Mr. Miyamoto delivered Ambassador’s statement on this occasion. The oxygen generators will be delivered to 58 hospitals around the country. Ambassador KIKUTA’s statement is available from here:
The Government of Japan supports Nepal to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic by providing medical equipment under the Japanese Grant Aid. So far, 25 blood gas analyzers and 25 portable ultrasound image diagnostic systems have been installed and used at many hospitals across the country.
What is more, Japan will provide 6 Made-in-Japan Ambulances in October to mitigate the shortage of ambulances in this pandemic.
These equipped ambulances will serve as mobile hospitals to manage an emergency care. The Embassy of Japan hopes that this assistance for hospitals will save lives of many Nepali people who are suffering from COVID-19, we hope it will also ease the difficulties of medical professionals who work for them around-a-clock.
