India has Shown ‘Good Faith’ in Humanity: US Lawmaker on Sending Vaccines to African Nations

Vaccines to African Nations

A senior US legislator has reportedly praised India for dispatching Covid-19 vaccines to African countries, saying that the step has demonstrated “good faith” in humanity.

During a markup of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Congresswoman Karen has said that India has made “vaccines available to 30 other countries in Africa.”

“Although there are reports that the Serum Institute of India is suspending major exports of the AstraZeneca Covid19 vaccine to the continent, they have shown a good faith in humanity,” the Democratic Congresswoman from California remarked as she referred to her recently-held meeting with India’s Ambassador to the US Taranjit Singh Sandhu.

She said that India, among others, has provided a grant in delivery of 30,000 Covid-19 vaccines to the African nation Botswana.
