Greetings dear Rotarians.
I don’t want to add to the doomsday headlines of today and talk about the 2nd wave of the Covid-19 virus (mutated variants, in fact) sweeping across the world right now and the chaos it’s leaving in its wake. Let’s instead talk about the measures entire nations and agencies have taken up to combat and eventually, nullify this pandemic.
Rotary Club of Madras is one such key player in the grand scheme of things. A series of miracles later (creating a vaccine in under 12 months, manufacturing enough for nations to buy, producing a vast lot for Phase 1, etc.), we are endeavouring to make another miracle happen - getting these vaccines on-ground to the people. Let’s support our teams and our governments in this process, united, if we want to conquer this virus.
Here’s to us, to the Rotary world and to all of us global citizens at large - may we stay compassionate, connected and committed to fighting this disease together.
