China provides over 200 mobile oxygen concentrators

ISLAMABAD: As the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has expressed fears that Covid-19 cases may rise during Eidul Azha holidays, China on Wednesday handed over 200 mobile oxygen concentrators to Pakistan.

The oxygen concentrators were handed over to chairman of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) Lt Gen Akhtar Nawaz by China’s Ambassador to Pakistan Nong Rong at a ceremony.

The ceremony was attended by officials of the Chinese embassy, ministries of National Health Services and Foreign Affairs and NDMA.

Speaking on the occasion, the NDMA chairman, on behalf of the people and the government of Pakistan, thanked the people and government of China for donating the oxygen concentrators.

Mr Nong said China-Pakistan relations were growing stronger with the passage of time.

An oxygen concentrator is a device that concentrates oxygen from air by selectively removing nitrogen to supply an oxygen-enriched gas stream.
