The world applauds India’s efforts to provide Covid-19 vaccine to neighbouring countries.
Covid-19 Update: Recently, India approved two covid-19 vaccines for emergency use, one is Covishield from Sirum Insititute of India (one of the largest manufacturer of different vaccines) and another one is Covaxin from Bharat BioTech (Bharat BioTech made this vaccine with collaboration of ICMR). Both are an Indian company.
India is the largest manufacturer of vaccines. Hence World’s eyes on India for Covid-19 vaccine as well. India started vaccines its health worker and set a record of the highest number of vaccinating in a single day.
India is not only focusing on vaccinating its people even gifting the Covid-19 vaccine to its neighbouring countries such as Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Myanmar, Mauritius, Seychelles, (Sri Lanka and Afghanistan – still to be sent).
It also started sending commercial consignments of Covid vaccine dozes to the countries such as Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Brazil and Morocco.
Brazil’s President Jair M Bolsonaro responded to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after receiving a consignment of Covid vaccine. He uses Lord Hanuman’s image of taking Sanjevani (Rare Medicine) to show his gratitude towards India.
He says in a tweet, “Brazil is honoured to have a great partner to overcome a global obstacle. Thank you for helping us with vaccine exports from India to Brazil. – Namaskar, Prime Minister @narendramodi”
– Namaskar, Primeiro Ministro @narendramodi
– O Brasil sente-se honrado em ter um grande parceiro para superar um obstáculo global. Obrigado por nos auxiliar com as exportações de vacinas da Índia para o Brasil.
