CLAT 2021 English Language, Practice Set C – Previous Year Questions

As the global vaccination effort progresses, the focus on vaccine diplomacy has intensified. According to a report from The New York Times, which analyzed vaccine contracts compiled by Duke University, some advanced countries have secured advance purchase contracts for potential vaccines that would be sufficient to vaccinate their populations multiple times over. Specifically, the European Union could vaccinate its population twice, the United States and the United Kingdom four times each, and Canada six times.

In the pursuit of early vaccination to restore normalcy and stimulate economic growth, advanced countries seem to have shifted away from considerations of public good and global cooperation. While these nations appear to disregard the vaccination needs of poorer countries, India has taken a different approach by demonstrating empathy and commitment. India has committed to allowing a significant percentage of its approved vaccine doses for export, with neighboring countries receiving shipments as grants, and the least developed countries receiving the initial vaccine shipments for free. India has already begun sending vaccine shipments to various parts of the developing world.

Even as India is in the initial phases of vaccinating its own healthcare workers, its commitment to supporting other countries in their vaccination efforts has garnered global appreciation. Despite potential domestic backlash, India’s approach underscores the importance of coordinated global efforts to combat COVID-19.

India’s proactive stance has positioned it as a key contributor to global development and earned it the reputation of the “world’s pharmacy.” This approach has sparked discussions in richer countries about the necessity of taking more proactive measures to ensure vaccine distribution to developing nations.
