NEW DELHI:

India will start exporting COVID-19 vaccines to many third world countries from Wednesday.

The Foreign Ministry made the decision following requests from neighbouring and key partner countries from South-East Asia and other continents.

The Government informed that the shipments would start on January 20, and it plans to ship millions of doses to these countries in the coming week.

Officials from the ministry also informed that the step would help mid and lower-income countries to get supplies of the easy-to-store Oxford/AstraZeneca drug.

The countries which will receive the vaccine supply in the first phase include Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar and Seychelles.
