Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has praised the contribution of medical professionals in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. He said India is emerging as the “Covid-19 vaccine manufacturing hub of the world”.
Addressing the Global Indian Physicians Congress, organised by the Global Association for Physicians of Indian Origin (GAPIO), through video conference, Harsh Vardhan praised the contribution of medical professionals in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
“As the world faced the unprecedented crisis of Covid-19, it has been our doctors, nurses and healthcare workers who have cemented their position as the foremost champions of humanity, saving humankind as it was staring at an existential crisis. I salute their courage, valour and selflessness in serving society,” he said.
“No words are enough to express gratitude towards all the Corona Warriors, who risked their own lives to save the lives of others. It is unfortunate and a great personal loss for me that so many of them lost their lives during this time,” he said.
“In what is a remarkable endorsement of our spectacular talent and capabilities, India which is often referred to as the pharmacy of the world is now also emerging as the Covid-19 vaccine manufacturing hub of the world,” Dr Harsh Vardhan added.
