Dominica PM grateful for COVID vaccines from India

Posted: Friday, February 12, 2021. 9:14 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, has expressed heartfelt gratitude to Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, for delivering doses of the Indian-made Covishield COVID-19 vaccine, according to Times Now News of India.

As the vaccines arrived on Sunday, Skerrit said that he did not imagine that the prayers of his country, population 72,000, would be answered so swiftly.

Sharing a picture of a consignment reaching Dominica, Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar described it as “a gesture of goodwill and an example of support”.

Skerrit told his nation in a video message, “I didn’t fancy my chances of getting such a swift and positive response to my request of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi…One would have thought and understood that [in] a global pandemic such as this, a nation’s size [might] have been the primary considerations, but it [is] to the credit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that our request was considered on merit and the equality of our people was recognised…” he added.

The vaccine doses were also delivered to Barbados under India’s Vaccine Maitri initiative.
