India has informed the UN Security Council that it will gradually supply vaccines to the COVAX facility of the World Health Organisation and undertake contractual supplies to various countries in a phased manner, as more than six million doses have been airlifted to nine countries under New Delhi’s ‘vaccine diplomacy.’

“We are fulfilling our commitment to make our vaccine production and delivery capacity available for the benefit of the entire humanity,” says India’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador K. Nagaraj Naidu.
