Pfizer is in discussions with the government for an expedited approval pathway to make Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine available: Pfizer’s Chairman and CEO Albert Bourla
Today we have announced we are mobilizing the largest humanitarian relief effort in our company’s history to help the people of India fight the vicious second wave of coronavirus that is currently ravaging the nation, Bourla said
Right now, Pfizer colleagues at distribution centers in the US, Europe, and Asia are hard at work rushing shipments of Pfizer medicines that the Government of India has identified as part of their COVID treatment protocol, said Bourla
We are donating enough of these medicines to ensure that every COVID-19 patient in every public hospital across India can have access to them in the next 90 days free of charge. This effort has the potential to impact the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients, Bourla added

The relationship is going through a very difficult phase because in violation of agreements & understandings of many years, the Chinese have deployed a very large part of the military on/close to LAC without explanation: EAM Dr S Jaishankar on current relations b/w India & China Image
We've been very clear with the Chinese that peace& tranquility on the border&border areas absolutely essential to the development of our relationship.
I can't have friction, bloodshed, intimidation on the borders and then say let's have a good relationship in other domains: EAM
India & China have made some progress in some areas. We haven't come to the de-escalation part of it which will follow after disengagement is done. Last conversation with China was focused on COVID and the Chinese Foreign Minister also said the same to me: EAM Dr Jaishankar

Our healthcare system stands exposed, very clear that over 75 yrs we've underinvested in health. Maybe there were reasons, it's very easy to say you should've put in more money. Now that I'm in govt I can tell you it's not as easy as it sounds: EAM at Global Dialogue Series Image
This isn't a defence of today's situation, I'm saying this for over 75 yrs. It is that realisation, that PM was pushing for Ayushman Bharat as we had reached a stage where PM genuinely believed we can't leave people to vagaries of pvt practitioners, however, good they may be: EAM
But having said that, you have what you have at this point of time which is an under-invested health sector over many decades...In a crisis today, even though I have limitations, I have to make that extra effort, find some way by which I can respond to today's crisis: EAM
