Recently, Israel shared “state-of-the-art artificial intelligence-based technologies and high-end equipment” with AIIMS, Delhi as part of Israel-India cooperation to fight ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Director of AIIMS Dr Randeep Guleria said, “India-Israel relations are strong. Earlier, India helped Israel with medicines and safety gear. Now Israel has sent equipment including robotic teleconsultation and telemonitoring equipment.”
The Israeli envoy said it is the most advanced medical equipment that they have developed especially for fighting Covid-19.
“Some of it was contributed by companies, they just love India and some of it was purchased with special fund allocated by our Foreign Minister,” he said.
Malka had expressed confidence that these technologies will help further bolster the capabilities to tackle Covid-19.
These trials are a part of a multi-pronged mission visiting India from Israel to cooperate on Covid-19 research and development, further cementing the strategic relationship between the two countries. (ANI)
