    International aid is now arriving in the country, with a Canadian plane having landed carrying vials of the antiretroviral drug remdesivir and ventilators. And there is now an effort being made by countries like Canada that aims to provide poorer countries with medical supplies.

    Redmond Shannon explains how The Every Breath Counts Coalition is working to keep the crisis seen in India from reaching those countries.
