Biden spoke to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in detail on Monday and expressed solidarity with India’s fight against the deadly disease. Biden told a news conference at the White House on Tuesday that the United States was sending more drugs, including Ramadasivir, to India. He said that necessary machinery for the vaccination system is also being sent. The President said that he had also discussed with Prime Minister Modi when the United States would be able to send genuine vaccines to India. “The problem at the moment is that we have to make sure that we have a large number of Novavax and other potential vaccines and I think we will be in a position to distribute the vaccines then.” US lawmakers have praised Biden’s support for India. Congressman Brad Sherman said that as India’s ally, it was America’s duty to help meet the Kovid-19 challenge.
