Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has proposed the creation of an emergency fund to fight the new strain of coronavirus COVID-19. He also invited the leaders of the countries of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation SAARC to create a rapid response group and a platform for the study of the disease, as well as share best practices and assess the impact on health and the economy.

Narendra Modi put forward his proposals at a video conference on March 15. India invited neighbors to make humanitarian needs a priority, to reaffirm the importance of collective action against the pandemic.

Narendra Modi proposed the creation of an emergency fund to combat COVID-19 through voluntary contributions. India has already committed ten million dollars to help any of the SAARC states cover the costs of emergency measures to combat the pandemic. At the same time, Indian rapid response teams consisting of doctors, specialists and testing equipment, which are already on standby, are ready to help other states.

In addition, India is ready to conduct online training for emergency personnel for all SAARC countries, and to organize video conferences with doctors and medical workers. Narendra Modi proposed the creation of a research platform for all SAARC states to exchange ideas and suggestions on diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for diseases and epidemics.
