Support for India

The UK is sending lifesaving medical equipment to India to support the country in its fight against Covid-19 – standing side by side with our Indian friends in the global battle to defeat this virus.

  • The situation in India in their battle against Covid-19 is deeply worrying, with the country reporting its highest numbers of new daily cases and deaths since the pandemic began and facing severe shortages of oxygen.
     
  • That is why Britain is sending shipments of over 600 oxygen concentrators and ventilators to India, with the first shipment arriving tomorrow, providing vital medical treatment to prevent the tragic loss of life from this virus. We will continue to work closely with the Government of India to identify what further assistance we can provide.
     
  • The fight against Covid-19 is a global effort and we will do everything we can to support the international community in this battle, helping to save lives across the world.
