The United States is not an island, nor are we isolated from the rest of the world.
If we don’t ensure that India and others have access to the vaccine, we remain vulnerable to variants. This pandemic will not end until we work together to end it.

My mother, Shyamala Gopalan, came from India to the U.S. to become a scientist. She had two goals in life: to cure breast cancer and to raise my sister, Maya, and me. I am forever grateful to her, and all mothers who love us, raise us, and inspire us. Happy Mother’s Day! pic.twitter.com/T7yCYA98oL

“We aren’t an island. I mean, the disease is going to continue to come back to us.”

The rest of the world puts their hand up to help the #IndiaCovid19 effort. And we lock our own ppl out. Our citizens have been trying to get home from India for months. Now is the critical time to help them. NOT to leave them to die. Fucking UNBELIEVABLE!!! #ScottyDoesNothing

I had a terrific call this afternoon with Penny Naas, President International Public Affairs at UPS. She told me of their commitment to deliver oxygen and vaccines to India and to many other nations. Thank you UPS for your leadership during this public health crisis. https://t.co/p523s94IfS
