Vaccine help from India Reaches Taiwan

Paraguay is one of the 90 countries who are to get COVID-19 shorts from India. Paraguay has received 1 lakh covaxin shots last month.
That might seem par for the course of New Delhi’s vaccine diplomacy, which has seen the country use inoculations and other medical equipment to cement its status except for the fact that the supply to Paraguay apparently came after a request from Taiwan.
This was reflected in an April statement by Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu that the Chinese government had tried to convince Paraguay to drop Taiwan as a diplomatic ally in exchange for vaccine doses. “In the last few weeks, we have been speaking to like-minded countries, including Japan, the United States, India etc., and India fortunately has been able to provide some Covaxin vaccines to Paraguay,” Wu said.
