Kevin Pietersen says India ‘most fabulous country’

'That caring spirit once again shown by India! The most fabulous country with so many warm hearted people! Thank you! cc @narendramodi,' the England batting veteran tweeted

Cricket commentator, conservationist and former England international player Kevin Pietersen has lauded India for extending support to African countries amid a fresh Covid-19 wave triggered by a new mutant of the China-origin detected recently in South Africa. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has assigned the name Omicron, after a Greek letter, skipping two letters Nu and Xi in the language’s alphabet, in what is being seen the world over as the UN health agency’s bid to pander to China.

Yesterday, India had announced that it was ready to supply vaccines, life-saving drugs, testing kits, gloves, PPE kits, medical equipment as may be needed to the affected African countries.

In a tweet, Pietersen praised India’s “caring spirit”, terming it as the “most fabulous country” while thanking Prime Minister yesterday.

“That caring spirit once again shown by India! The most fabulous country with so many warm hearted people! Thank you! cc @narendramodi,” Pietersen tweeted.

The Ministry of External Affairs had yesterday released a statement extending its support to African nations affected by the new variant.

“We have noted the emergence of a new variant of Covid-19, Omicron. We express our solidarity with the countries, particularly in Africa, who have so far been affected by the Omicron variant,” the MEA said in a statement.

“The Government of India stands ready to support the countries affected in Africa in dealing with the Omicron variant, including by supplies of Made-in-India vaccines,” it said.

“Supplies can be undertaken through COVAX or bilaterally. In this regard, the Government has cleared all orders placed so far by COVAX for supplies of Covishield vaccines, including to African countries like Malawi, Ethiopia, Zambia, Mozambique, Guinea and Lesotho. We have also cleared supplies of Covaxin to Botswana. Any new requirement projected either bilaterally or through COVAX will be considered expeditiously,” the statement said.
