The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday announced that it will be donating 10-Litre 2000 Oxygen concentrators to aid India’s fight against the second of novel coronavirus.
With demands for medical equipment and oxygen cylinders witnessing a major spike in the country, the Indian cricket board has decided to lend a helping hand in these testing times.
The BCCI recently took to its official Twitter handle and informed that it will contribute the Oxygen concentrators to boost India’s efforts in overcoming the coronavirus pandemic.
The former India skipper and current BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly also saluted the frontline warriors for their remarkable contribution in India’s fight.
“The BCCI acknowledges the stellar role the medical and healthcare community has played and continues to play as we fight this long battle against the virus. They have truly been frontline warriors and have done whatever possible to shield us,” said Ganguly.
“The Board has always put health and safety at the top of the chart and remains committed to the cause. The oxygen concentrators will provide immediate relief to those affected and will help in their speedy recovery,” he added.
Earlier this month, the BCCI had to suspend the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League after several players and supporting staff members tested positive for COVID-19 inside the bio-secure bubble.
