PM Modi will deliver his remarks in the “Opening Session" of the summit on the theme – Preventing Pandemic Fatigue and Prioritizing Preparedness – the MEA said.

A second Global Covid-19 Summit will be held on 12 May, the White House and its partners had announced earlier, in an effort to bolster cooperation to end the pandemic and prepare for future health threats.

"The emergence and spread of new variants, like Omicron, have reinforced the need for a strategy aimed at controlling Covid-19 worldwide," the White House had said in a news release with the Group of Seven and Group of 20 nations.

The summit will build on efforts and commitments made at the first global summit in September, including getting more people vaccinated, sending tests and treatments to highest-risk populations, expanding protections to health care workers and generating financing for pandemic preparedness, the statement read.
