She thanked the US for sharing the Astrazeneca vaccine worldwide but pointed out that the situation in India is much worse and it requires more doses.
“Will you urgently share vaccines with India?” Priyanka said.
Many people remarked it was too late to be tweeting about aid and questioned Priyanka about what she herself has done to help the coronavirus patients in India.
Bollywood actor Twinkle Khanna announced that she and her husband Akshay Kumar have arranged 100 oxygen concentrators for an organisation in India from the UK.
