While fighting the global pandemic, India has always been at the forefront. It has provided the Covid-19 vaccine to more than 50 countries of the world. Still, it is fighting to the core in providing vaccines to every country.
Statistics of Covid Vaccine Supplied So Far From India
India has provided 56 lakh doses of Covid vaccines to several countries. The vaccines were sent to Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, and the Maldives. Union Health Minister said, “Under the leadership of PM Modi, the country has emerged as the world’s pharmacy, and has supplied 5.51 crore Covid-19 vaccines to 62 different countries”.
India’s Innovation in The Vaccine Under Limelight
Dr. Peter Hotez, Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at BCM said, “The two mRNA vaccines may not impact the world’s low and middle-income countries, but India’s vaccines made in collaboration with universities across the world such as BCM and Oxford University have rescued the world”. The way India has given huge efforts in making the vaccine to combat the global pandemic is a story that is not getting out in the world. He also praised India for its incredible rigor and creativity in the medicinal field.
