India, which has always shown generosity towards neighboring countries, has once again set the example of the spirit of 'neighbor first' in the Corona crisis. India announced on Tuesday that Corona vaccine supplies will be started to six countries from Wednesday.
This vaccine will be given as a grant-in-aid to these countries. The first countries to receive the vaccine include Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, and Seychelles. The Foreign Ministry said that on Wednesday, Bhutan will first be sent 1.5 lakh doses of Kovishield prepared by the Serum Institute of India (SII).
After this one million doses will be supplied to the Maldives. Kovishield vaccine will also be sent to Nepal, Myanmar, Seychelles, and Bangladesh on Wednesday. 20 million doses of Kovishield will reach Bangladesh on Thursday. Bangladesh Health Minister Zahid Malik has said that he himself will be present at the Dhaka airport to collect vaccine supplies.
The Ministry of External Affairs is in constant touch with the Ministry of Health about how much additional vaccine for other countries. On the other hand, it is reported that in recent times, many countries include neighboring countries such as Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and Mauritius.
