KATHMANDU,
May 12 (Xinhua) — The first shipment of China-donated oxygen cylinders
and ventilators arrived in Nepal on Tuesday, which Nepali officials say
are helpful in reducing the shortage of oxygen for COVID-19 patients in
the country.

A
Nepal Airlines plane landed at the Tribhuvan International Airport in
Kathmandu at 16:00 local time with oxygen cylinders, ventilators and
oxygen concentrators from Beijing, said Dim Prasad Poudel, managing
director of the airline.

According
to Nepal’s Finance Ministry which has been coordinating with the
Chinese side for the assistance, there is an agreement with China for
the delivery.

D.B.
Chhetri, under secretary at the ministry, told Xinhua that the Chinese
side would deliver the remaining oxygen cylinders in the next few weeks.

Citing the lack of oxygen, several hospitals have announced in recent days that they would not admit new patients.

“The
cylinders arrived from China will not be sufficient but helpful to ease
the oxygen crisis to some extent,” Jageshwor Gautam, spokesperson at
Nepal’s Ministry of Health and Population, told Xinhua.

He
said most of the China-donated cylinders would be distributed to large
government-run hospitals in the Kathmandu Valley and a few would be sent
to the crisis-hit provinces in southwestern and far-western Nepal
respectively.

As
of Tuesday, Nepal recorded a record high of 9,317 new infections,
taking the total cases to 413,111, and the death toll has reached 4,084.

Nepali
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli again called for international support to
Nepal on Monday, referring to vaccines, diagnostic tools, oxygen kits,
critical care medicines and equipment in particular.

At
a recent video conference of the foreign ministers of China,
Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka on COVID-19,
Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi announced that
China would provide Nepal with a new batch of anti-epidemic supplies.
