US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Japanese vehicle giant Suzuki announced today that it will start supplying oxygen to help India in the fight against COVID-19.
The vehicle manufacturer will cut production at 3 factories in India starting May 1 to 9 to make available the oxygen which is used in the manufacturing process for coronavirus patients, Kyodo News reported.
Oxygen is used for welding and other processes in vehicle manufacturing.
“Oxygen should be used to save lives,” a Suzuki official was quoted as saying in the report.
This decision came as the situation with COVID-19 in the country continues to deteriorate daily, with a record high of 3,645 other victims and 379,257 cases reported today.
The crisis has overwhelmed hospitals and caused a lack of oxygen in the country with over 1.36 billion inhabitants.
