Press Release: Provision of essential medical supplies to Bhutan

In keeping with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assurance that India would stand by its close friend and neighbour, Bhutan in fighting the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Government of India through Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj handed over today a consignment of medical supplies to Health Minister Dechen Wangmo, including N-95 masks, Personal Protective Equipment and Cetrizine tablets. This is the 5th shipment of medical supplies handed over by the Government of India to the Royal Government of Bhutan during COVID19 times.

India’s gesture to continue delivery of essential medical supplies is a reflection of the special bonds of trust and understanding between India and Bhutan that have existed over decades. Going forward, India will continue to extend all possible support to Bhutan to minimize the health and economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
