“They have truly been frontline fighters, doing everything they can to protect us.” “The Board has always prioritised health and safety and remains committed to the cause,” Ganguly said.
“The oxygen concentrators will offer instant relief to those who are affected which will aid in their quick recovery,” he said.
Jay Shah, the BCCI’s Honorary Secretary, said that the BCCI was fighting the pandemic “shoulder to shoulder.” “In this joint battle against the virus, we stand shoulder to shoulder,” Shah said.
“The BCCI recognises the urgent need for medical equipment in this time of crisis, and hopes that this initiative will contribute to closing the demand-supply gap that has arisen across the world,” he said.
“We’ve all been through a lot, but I’m sure that now that the vaccine campaign is ongoing, we’ll be able to remain ahead of the game. I strongly advise anyone who is willing to get vaccinated to do so “He came to a conclusion.
