At the same time, it has been said that America has promised to help him in combating this challenge (Kamala Harris on India). Harris told reporters in Cincinnati, Ohio on Friday, “There is no question that this is a big tragedy in the context of people’s lives.” As I have said before, I will say once again that as a country we have promised them to support the people of India.
In response to a question, Harris said, ‘We have made a promise in terms of dollar amount, which will be given in terms of PPE and other things. But this is sad. My prayers are with the people in the extreme pain they are going through. Earlier, the White House had announced a ban on travel from India in view of the considerable increase in cases of Covid-19 in India. Harris said that he has not spoken to his family in India since the news of the ban became public.
MPs expressed concern
At the same time, the top US lawmakers have also expressed concern over the growing cases of corona in India (US on India). He has said that it is very disappointing to see that ‘the crisis has put tremendous pressure on the health structures in the country’. Congress member Brad Sherman, Democratic co-head of the India Caucus in the House of Representatives, said, “The recent increase in Covid-19 cases in India is a humanitarian crisis that needs our help.”
Need to eliminate virus from everywhere
Sherman said, ‘As long as there is a COVID-19 in India, there will be a possibility of additional variants coming up, which can pose a serious threat to the US who have given vaccine to everyone (New Covid Variants in India). We have to make efforts to eradicate the virus from everywhere where it exists. A changed form of the virus, B1.617, is spreading in India along with several other types including B1.1.7 and B1.351. B.1.1.7 and B.1.351 were found in Britain and South Africa respectively for the first time.
