Geneva: The Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus took to social media platform Twitter to appreciate the efforts of the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi in India’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Tedros tweeted, “Thank you for your commitment to solidarity, Prime Minister @narendramodi. Only together, by mobilizing our forces and resources jointly for the common good, can we end the #COVID19 pandemic. #UNGA”
In his address to the 75th session of the UN General Assembly, Prime Minister Modi said that “as the largest vaccine producing country of the world, I want to give one more assurance to the global community today. India’s vaccine production and delivery capacity will be used to help all humanity in fighting this crisis.”
He said that even during these very difficult times of the raging pandemic, the pharmaceutical industry of India has sent essential medicines to more than 150 countries.
He, however, questioned the response of the United Nations in combating the pandemic that has so far infected over 32 million people in the world and will soon reach the grim milestone of a million deaths.
Thank you for your commitment to solidarity, 🇮🇳 Prime Minister @narendramodi. Only together, by mobilizing our forces and resources jointly for the common good, can we end the #COVID19 pandemic. #UNGA @PMOIndia @CDMissionIndia @IndiaUNNewYorkhttps://t.co/UgHjNgmKlM
