Toronto/ New Delhi: In what underlines the success of New Delhi’s vaccine diplomacy, billboards have come up in the Greater Toronto area thanking PM Narendra Modi and India for providing COVID-19 vaccines to Canada. India has been at the forefront of supplying vaccines to various nations in the world and the gesture has earned accolades not only from allies and global bodies such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) but even from individuals committed to the betterment of human society.
Last week, Canada received 500,000 doses of Covishield vaccine, the consignment of which was received by Canadian partner Verity Pharmaceuticals.
Days ago, speaking at the virtual India-Sweden summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that ‘Made-in-India’ vaccines have been supplied to over 50 countries so far. He had also said that New Delhi has plans to supply vaccines to more countries in the months to come.
