‘Congress raised doubts over vaccines’: Harsh Vardhan replies to Manmohan Singh

Hitting back at senior Congress leader Manmohan Singh for his critique of the government's COVID-19 management, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Monday alleged the second wave of the pandemic was instead fuelled by Congress ruled states as they were busy raising doubts about vaccines rather than vaccinating people. Responding to Singh's letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Vardhan also said that the letter drafters of the senior Congress leader have done a great disservice to his standing. Tweeting the letter to Singh, the health minister said, "History shall be kinder to you Dr Manmohan Singh ji if your offer of 'constructive cooperation' and valuable advice was followed by your @INCIndia leaders as well in such extraordinary times !" Singh on Sunday wrote to Prime Minister Modi suggesting five measures to battle the COVID-19 crisis, including ramping up vaccination and boosting supply of medicines. Watch the full video for more details.

Greta Thunberg: Vaccine nationalism is “completely unethical”

Greta Thunberg has criticised rich nations, like the UK and US, for vaccinating young and healthy people in their own countries, at expense of vulnerable in poor nations. Speaking at a World Health Organisation press conference. The 18 year-old used the platform to call on the UK and US to reconsider mass vaccination programmes of all citizens, and distribute vaccines to the vulnerable in other less wealthy countries. Ms Thunberg also said she believes Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, has failed to safeguard humanity in his actions during the pandemic and the fight against climate change. It comes as MsThunberg announced she will donate €100,000 to WHO to be invested into the COVAX programme, to purchase Covid-19 vaccines, as part of the global effort to ensure access of vaccines to the most at-risk in all countries, including health workers, older people and those with underlying conditions.
