As Covid 19 second wave crumbles down the medical system in India, Microsoft CEO Satya Nedalla has come forward, raising his voice to support the country. Nadella stated his concern on Microsoft-owned professional connecting platform, LinkedIn and on Twitter. He said that while it is heartbreaking to see thousands die each day in the country due to lack of medical facilities, he is also thankful to the US government for coming forward and helping India with raw materials for the vaccine.

The US recently confirmed that it is "immediately" making vaccination raw materials to scale up production of the Covishield coronavirus vaccine. This was confirmed by the US president Joe Biden on Twitter as well. “Just as India sent assistance to the United States as our hospitals were strained early in the pandemic, we are determined to help India in its time of need,” Biden quoted a tweet by White House National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan.

In his tweet, Sullivan stated that he spoke to National Security Advisor Ajit Doval about the spike in COVID cases in India and has decided to help the country with resources.

On the other hand, local tech firms are also doing their best to amplify the request for hospital beds, Oxygen requirements and more via their social media channels. While Zomato has started priority delivery for Covid-19 patients, MapMyIndia has launched a special tool to show hospitals that have beds and Oxygen available.
