New York, January 29
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has received his first dose of the Covid vaccine (Moderna) here and appealed to people to get vaccinated as soon as they can while stressing that nations must ensure the vaccine is available to everyone, everywhere.
He said India’s vaccine production capacity was one of the best assets the world had, applauding the country’s move to supply Covid doses to nations to combat the catastrophic global health crisis. The UN Secretary-General also expressed hope that India will have all instruments necessary to play a major role in ensuring a global vaccination campaign becomes possible. India has airlifted 6 million doses to nine countries in Phase-I under “Vaccine Maitri” drive. — PTI
