Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of Dominica has written to the Prime Minister of India seeking COVID vaccines for Dominica.
In a letter to PM Modi, Prime Minister Skerrit wrote: “As we enter 2021 and persevere in our fight against Covid-19, Dominica’s population of 72,100 is in urgent need of enough doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. I, therefore, request, with great humility and respect, that you assist us by donating the doses we need to make our population safe (optimally 70,000 first and second doses).”
PM Modi has also tweeted and said that: India is deeply honored to be a long-trusted partner in meeting the healthcare needs of the global community. Supplies of Covid vaccines to several countries will commence tomorrow, and more will follow in the days ahead. #VaccineMaitri
