GIS – 15 April, 2020: Mauritius received, today, half a million of Hydroxychloroquine tablets, a drug effective for treating Covid-19, from the Government of India. The consignment is the first part of the 13 tons of essential life saving medicines that have been earmarked for Mauritius. A second consignment from India will follow in coming weeks.
According to the press release issued by the High Commission of India, this evening, the consignment which arrived on a special Air India cargo flight from Delhi, is a gesture of friendship and goodwill from the Government of India. Mauritius’ request for Hydroxychloroquine tablets has been granted despite a restriction on the export of this drug continues to be in force in India due to the unprecedented prevailing difficult situation caused bythe Covid-19 global pandemic.
Mauritius is one of the first countries to receive supplies of this medicine after a special exemption was granted to a few countries. In these difficult times, India reiterates its support to the Government of Mauritius as well as its commitment to contributing to the public health and welfare of Mauritians.
