Kathmandu: Japan is providing 25 Portable Ultrasound Image Diagnostic Systems to 25 hospitals in Nepal. A total of 23 systems were already handed over on Sunday.
Upon handing over the medical equipment to the hospitals, Japanese Ambassador to Nepal KIKUTA Yutaka stated Japan always stands behind Nepal in fight against the pandemic.
“While Japan keeps fighting the pandemic domestically, Japan always stands behind Nepal. We will tackle the COVID-19 pandemic together at this critical time. I sincerely hope that the medical equipment will help Nepali people in this difficult situation,” he said.
Japan supports Nepal to tackle the pandemic by providing medical equipment under the Japanese Grant Aid. Twenty-five Blood Gas Analyzers have already been provided on January 27 to 25 hospitals in the country.
Japan will soon provide 160 oxygen concentrators and 6 ambulances, the Japanese Embassy in Kathmandu said in a statement.

These oxygen concentrators will arrive in Nepal next month and they are significantly useful especially for the urgent treatment of Covid-19 patients since these high-tech equipment can “generate” highly concentrated oxygen without the need of oxygen cylinders. They will be distributed to 58 hospitals across the nation.
The Embassy of Japan hopes that this assistance will save the lives of as many Nepalese people as possible.
The Embassy also hopes this will contribute towards further strengthening the relationship, friendship and cooperation between the peoples of Japan and Nepal.
