Brazil has repeatedly asked India to export the Covichield vaccine. Last week, Brazil sent another plane to India for this purpose. Brazil first approached China for a corona vaccine. But Brazil has shunned China due to safety concerns over vaccine injections in China. Meanwhile, 92 countries, including Brazil, have approached India for the corona vaccine. Earlier this week, India had given away free vaccines to neighboring countries like Bhutan, Maldives, Bangladesh and Nepal. World leaders, including Nepal’s Prime Minister K. P. Sharma Oli and Mali’s President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, thanked India for bringing the vaccine.
