Meanwhile, the US House of Representatives has expressed its support for India’s fight against the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, and has encouraged the Biden administration to expedite Covid assistance to India in a resolution.
The bipartisan resolution, which had 41 co-sponsors and was co-authored by Congressmen Brad Sherman and Steve Chabot, acknowledged that India relaxed its export ban on specific pharmaceuticals in response to a request from the US government when the US was seeing a severe rise in Covid cases.
The resolution acknowledged that India’s pharmaceutical industry is an important part of the global response to the pandemic, particularly for much of Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and that India is the world’s largest producer of Covid vaccines, exporting 66.36 million doses to 93 countries and accounting for more than half of global vaccine production.
