The world is only as resilient as the least resilient country.

He added, “Over past year, we provided vaccines, medical equipment to over 150 countries.

We extend deep appreciation to those providing priority requirements.” India provided Covid vaccines to its neighbours as well as nations in Latin America, Africa.
