Indian Ambassador Piyush Srivastava yesterday called on the Indian community members to follow Bahrain’s COVID-19 protocols and get vaccinated to support the Kingdom’s battle against the deadly pandemic.
The call came as Piyush Srivastava interacted with the Indian community members during the Embassy’s Open House held yesterday.
The virtual Open house dealt with urgent and non-routine consular and labour issues of the community members.
The ambassador briefed the participants about India’s global contribution to the fight against the pandemic.
“So far, India has supplied approximately 25 million ‘Made in India’ COVID vaccines to over 25 countries.
Many more are on the way.
Bahrain was among the first countries to receive vaccines,” Srivastava told the open house.
Srivastava further said the country is entering into its 2nd phase of vaccination on 1 March 2021 by vaccinating all above 60 years and 45 years with comorbidities.
The Indian ambassador also encouraged community members to follow the website and social media accounts of the Indian Embassy for updates regarding pressing common issues.
