Priyanka Chopra criticised for asking US govt to help India

My heart breaks, she said

Actor Priyanka Chopra has requested the US government to help India as coronavirus wreaks havoc in the country.

“My heart breaks,” she tweeted. “India is suffering from COVID-19 and the US has ordered 550 million more vaccines than needed.”

She thanked the US for sharing the Astrazeneca vaccine worldwide but pointed out that the situation in India is much worse and it requires more doses. 

“Will you urgently share vaccines with India?” Priyanka said.

Many people remarked it was too late to be tweeting about aid and questioned Priyanka about what she herself has done to help the coronavirus patients in India.
