UNGA 2020: India’s Modi pledges to use country’s vaccine production to “help all humanity”

Global News published this video item, entitled “UNGA 2020: India’s Modi pledges to use country’s vaccine production to “help all humanity”” – below is their description.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledged at the United Nations on Saturday that his country’s vaccine production capacity would be made available globally to fight the COVID-19 crisis. “As the largest vaccine-producing country of the world, I want to give one more assurance to the global community today,” Modi said in a pre-recorded speech to the U.N. General Assembly. “India’s vaccine production and delivery capacity will be used to help all humanity in fighting this crisis.” Modi said India was moving ahead with Phase 3 clinical trials – the large-scale trials considered the gold standard for determining safety and efficacy – and would help all countries enhance their cold chain and storage capacities for the delivery of vaccines. Modi said in August that India was ready to mass produce COVID-19 vaccines when scientists give the go-ahead. India, the world’s second most populous country after China, has recorded more than 5.8 million cases of COVID-19, second only behind the United States.
