WHO chief Tedros thanks PM Modi for strong commitment to Covid vaccine
NEW YORK: World Health Organisation (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his strong commitment to Covax and making Covid-19 vaccines a global public good.
"I thanked Prime Minister @narendramodi for his strong commitment to COVAX and making #COVID19 vaccines a global public good. The pandemic is an unprecedented challenge for the world, and we agreed to work shoulder to shoulder to end it. #ACTtogether," Tedros said in tweet.
Tedros said he had a "very productive" telephone call with PM Modi during which both of them talked about ways to "strengthen our collaboration and advance access to knowledge, research and training in traditional medicine globally".
The WHO chief said in a tweet, "Namaste, Prime Minister @narendramodi, for a very productive call on how to strengthen our collaboration & advance access to knowledge, research and training in traditional medicine globally. @WHO welcomes India's Flag of India leading role in global health, and to universal health coverage."
Prime Minister expressed his appreciation for WHO's important role in facilitating a coordinated global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a statement issued by the PMO said.
He also noted the need to not lose sight of the battle against other diseases and appreciated the importance of WHO's support to the health systems of developing countries.
According to the release, PM Modi Minister informed Dr Tedros about the planned celebration of Ayurveda Day in India on November 13 under the theme of 'Ayurveda for COVID-19'.
Wonder why he’s still its Chief, shameless moron ? WHO instead of seeking info was heaping praises on China & giving Contradictory statements
Good initiative by Modiji. Great leader with great thought process for the Human well being.
I think this WHO chief was responsible for the spread of the virus. Why should Modi be hand in gloves with such a character?
Not again! There is ZERO value of traditional medicine. It shows again that Feku, aka Surrender Modi, does not believe in science, and he still keeps on denying that there is any community spread. It's no secret that Feku even claims that Lord Ganesha was given an elephant head through plastic surgery and mythical aeroplanes flew across the skies of ancient India.
He is also equally responsible for COVID PANDEMIC which claimed millions of lives.
A lot of tradition Indian. can not only prevent COVID but also cure it. Modern medicine and vaccine take many years to develop and some have low less than 50 % of efficacy . One the other hand tradition Indian medicines have more than 200% efficacy and efficiency in curing COVID.
Modi has done nothing so why is this moron thanking him.
Good Discussion and Good Decision.....
If Tedros didn't have Xi's permission to compliment Modi, he will soon lose his job as the WHO chief!
Good collaboration to cheat the people of India and world.
Now Modiji is getting along well..
I do not need a vaccine. Instead of spending trillions on vaccine, feed, educate and clothe the poor.It will be much more than vaccine.
