United States/India: New reports have recently emerged indicating that the top health official for the White House praised the huge efforts made by India and the US to provide COVID-19 immunizations, and mobilize their nations while supporting others to combat the deadly virus.
The White House Corona virus Response Coordinator, Dr Ashish Jha, claimed that the two countries contributed more than any other country to battle the global virus.
The health official admitted that he spent a lot of time researching and working on the virus breakout during the previous two and a half years.
On the auspicious event of India’s 76th Independence Day hosted by the country’s ambassador to the US, Jha said, “I can’t think of two nations that have done more to vaccinate and protect their populations, and to donate and support and vaccinate and protect the world than India and the United States”, according to PTI.
Jha also highlighted that India and the US are the most important and powerful democracies in the world.
“As a proud Indian-American, I am grateful for the words that our President Joe Biden used, who reminded us that the three or three and a half million of us who are Indian Americans, the vibrant Indian American community, has made America more innovative, more inclusive and a stronger nation,” Jha further added as per PTI reports.
Jha believes that the two countries have been united in their shared ideals which include upholding human freedom and dignity, pluralism and the rule of law.
