Whether it is approving the Indian vaccine or the decision to allow foreign travel of Indians, India is becoming a victim of vaccine racism on many fronts. Many big countries are treating Indians step-motherly. Some countries may have opened their doors for us but many countries still cannot travel. Somewhere due to late permission, the work made by the people is deteriorating. One such country is Germany. Germany has opened the roads for Indians on 6th July but a student of Delhi had to go there by 31st May. A student visa has expired. The student reached the special center to complete the schedule of the second dose of Kovishild vaccine in 28 days. The college has said that the last date for taking admission is August 31, but if the visa is not received on time, then the work is over.
The problems of Sanjay Rajpal, the head of the multinational pharma company, are even bigger, he has got Covaxin installed. The company has an annual meeting in September which is to be held in the Netherlands. Without going there it is difficult to carry on the work and if you go, how to go The covaccine has not yet been approved by the WHO itself. The result of this attitude is that people who have got the covaccine are now thinking of getting the covishield installed by theft.
Citizens of India can visit Russia, Serbia, Iceland, Rwanda, Germany, Ethiopia, Afghanistan and Mauritius from July 15. Qatar, South Korea, Nepal can also go to Cambodia. RT PCR report will be negative for transit from France. Compulsory Quarantine of 10 days in Bahrain, report 48 hours in advance, then there will be a test again on the 5th and 10th day of Quarantine. A 48-72 hour Covid negative report is required everywhere. A 14-day quarantine is necessary in most places. The condition of China to distribute corona to the world is also that Indians need health declaration form, negative nucleic acid test, antibody test, test within 48 hours, test again at the airport. Mexico and Venezuela are completely open to Indians. There is no need for any kind of test and quarantine.
Entry of Indians is banned in USA, UAE, Bangladesh, Australia, Kenya, Kuwait, Male, Hong Kong, Israel, Myanmar, New Zealand, Italy. Not only this, even if someone has spent 14 days in India, there is a ban.
It is also an achievement in a country with a population of 135 crore that 360 million people in India have been vaccinated in the vaccination campaign that started from January 2021. More people than the total population of America have received at least one dose of the vaccine. The population of America is around 33 crores. 35-50 lakh doses are being administered daily in India. Yet India is being accused of sluggish vaccination.
AstraZeneca’s vaccine has been recognized by the EU but its Indian version, CoveShield is not. WHO has recognized two vaccines from China but not India’s covaccine, while both vaccines have been found capable of competing with many variants in terms of quality. In the matter of approving these two vaccines and giving entry to Indians, the attitude of the economically prosperous countries and WHO is incomprehensible.
India’s vaccine is expected to be recognized by the WHO within a month. After India’s strong attitude, Switzerland, Iceland and 8 countries of the EU have recognized Kovishield under the Vaccine Passport. Estonia is the first country that has also recognized the vaccine. After the approval of EMA ie European Medicine Agency, the routes to Europe can be opened for Indians, but when that will happen cannot be said now.
India is in a better position than America in every case of recovery or death, but India is still kept under the ban by many countries due to its image of poor, poor and third world country. India is facing the brunt of the virus spread from Wuhan, China, due to its liberal image, which is now being resolved on the Indian scientific and diplomatic front. UN Secretary General Antonio Gutress recently tweeted, rich countries are vaccinating thirty times faster than poor countries. This big difference in vaccination is not right. This is dangerous for everyone.
India has given vaccine to 95 countries including Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Myanmar under the Vaccine Friendship campaign. For this, India was also criticized for leaving the people of its country and falling in the trap of the image of the first primate, but both the UN and WHO have been of the belief that until the vaccine reaches the countries of the whole world, the corona will not end. . The manner in which the variants are spreading rapidly from one country to another, it is enough to explain that if a global approach is not adopted in the matter of vaccine and countries are tied with arbitrary restrictions, then the infection of corona virus will not stop. Yes, the feeling of partiality and indifference in the countries of the world will definitely get strength.
