The information hub activities against the COVID-19 pandemic include the cooperation of BRICS TV with the One People International Movie Festival in South Africa where the international BRICS TV network presented its program on the special screenings of documentaries created by the directors from the BRICS countries on the "new reality" during the pandemic. The BRICS TV program includes "The Lockdown" documentary produced by the Omsk Television Company.
TV BRICS TV news reports on the vaccine production in Russia, vaccination of the country's population, restrictive measures and ways to combat the pandemic were regularly published on the platforms of the BRICS TV network media partners in Brazil, India, China, South Africa, which made it possible to share Russian experience in the fight against coronavirus and the Russian advanced health care technologies with the audience of these five countries in their national languages.
“We are pleased to underline the results of cooperation among the BRICS countries on improving preparedness and response to the pandemic situation,” said the New Delhi Declaration of the XIII BRICS Summit.
