Geneva/UNI: WHO Health Emergencies Programme Executive Director Dr Michael Ryan on Monday said that India is playing a leading role in the development of potential vaccine candidate and also producing potential anti-COVID drugs.

"So overall India is making a strong contribution on the international face", the WHO official said during a media briefing on COVID-19.

The spurt in cases, according to Dr Ryan, owed to the massive country size and population. "India has very high number of cases. But I think we should obviously see the number of cases in India today against the backdrop of the country;s size and massive population of 1.3 billion people", he said.
