A Message From Will Kennaway, Desk Officer, Nepal & Bhutan, FCDO
Following on from last week’s debate, I just wanted to update the committee on the UK’s COVID support to Nepal. Some of you may have already seen this press release (and Foreign Secretary’s accompanying Tweet) setting out that we have donated 260 ventilators (CPAP and BiPAP machines), 2,000 pieces of PPE, and also sent two medical experts. The press release also goes into a bit of detail about what else the UK Government / British Embassy Kathmandu has done so far. Our Ambassador Nicola also recorded this video from Tribhuvan Airport.
Please feel free to share these links with anyone else who might be interested. Thanks!
