"The medical supplies include face masks, gloves, PPE kits, mobile air purifiers and equipment to sterilise against air-borne bacteria and viruses," he said, adding that the medical equipment will help to keep ICU wards and ambulances protected and prevent the virus spread.  "India and South Korea share common cultures and are good trade partners in many sectors.
