India is joining the global hunt for medical supplies as the coronavirus crisis there worsens, with officials seeking more than 38 million masks and 6.2 million pieces of personal protective equipment.
Indian officials have sought supplies from “hundreds” of companies, according to a report by the country’s investment agency and obtained by Reuters.
The document shows authorities reached out to 730 firms for ventilators, ICU monitors, protective equipment, masks and testing kits.
But the supply shortage could be far greater, as the report covers only a fraction of India’s states and territories.
