“Thank you #India and Prime Minister @narendramodi for your continued support to the global #COVID19 response. Only if we #ACTogether, including sharing of knowledge, can we stop this virus and save lives and livelihoods,” he said in the tweet thanking India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Earlier today, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro today, also tweeted a word of thanks to India for the COVID-19 vaccines as Brazil is receiving 2 million doses of the vaccine from India.

India is the world’s leading drug manufacturer holding the title of “pharmacy of the world” with a gargantuan 60% of the world’s vaccine production taking place in India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier said that India’s vaccine production and delivery capacity would be used for the benefit of all humanity in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and has held up with that statement.
