We will have new world after Covid-19, balance of power between China and US will change: Rahul Gandhi
NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said he feels that "we will have a new world after this virus" and "balance of power between China and the United States will change post-COVID-19".
During an interaction with Ashish Jha, Director Harvard Global Health Institute and a recognised public health official, Gandhi said that coronavirus operates at two levels -- healthcare and attacking the globalised structure.
"The most vulnerable COVID-19 places are nerve centres of globalisation. I feel we will have a new world after this virus. I also think it going to reshape Europe. Balance of power between China and the US will be changed. Like 9/11 was a new chapter, this is a new book," Gandhi said.
Meanwhile, Jha said that three vaccines are showing promising results in the fight against coronavirus and expressed confidence that there will be a Covid-19 vaccine by next year.
"Three vaccines are showing promising results. These are from America, China and Oxford. For now, they all seem promising -- may be one of them or all turn out to be effective. I am confident that the vaccine will be available by next year. India has to prepare a plan on how to avail vaccines for its population," said Jha.
No need to take this genteman seriously. All choreographed interview
Why is this joker still given so much media space?
Dr Vidyadhar Yellutla
We already have new India from 2014 onwards
Raul vinci is antinational, antihindu
Better pappu sits in lockdown .No one listens to him
We will have a new world order when he and his family sever ties with India and leave never to return or poke their white noses in our affairs again.
China will be Superpower, US will be Regional Power, India will be Superpoor.
That's not a secret, US has lost its credibility to deal with crises and support the world, so China will surely replace US. India must not put all eggs in US basket.
The result of continuous lockdowns is being reflected in Rahul's blabberings. First he became an expert in economics, then covid virology, migrant sociology, and now international politics and diplomacy. A many faceted personality, indeed.
