Bhubaneswar: A German military aircraft carrying the first part of a massive oxygen generation plant landed in India today. Among many other nations, Germany has committed to help India overcome Oxygen shortage due to the devastating second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is being shipped to India in two parts, and the first part arrived in the country on Thursday.
