With our help, they can vaccinate more and quicker, thus reducing the change of further adverse mutations (also reducing sickness, hospitalisations, and deaths, hopefully).

I wonder whether or not India has got itself conflicted on hard currency arising from vaccine sales and prioritisation of inoculating the Indian population.

I would have thought that whatever the UK could contribute would be a drop in the ocean, although it might really be intended for political purposes.

Looking at this cynically, Covid might be a nice little earner for India as well as introducing a degree of population control/reduction.

That's not down to the capacity they have now or could have with government direction, but existing orders and commitments to other countries.

BBC story on it here https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-57007004

Between January and May 2021, India bought roughly 350 million doses of the two approved vaccines - the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab, manufactured as Covishield by the Serum Institute of India (SII), and Covaxin by Indian firm Bharat Biotech. At $2 per dose, they were among the cheapest in the world, but not nearly enough to inoculate even 20% of the country's population.

Declaring that India had defeated Covid, Mr Modi even took to "vaccine diplomacy", exporting more jabs than were administered in India by March.

Re: Coronavirus

I seem to recollect reading that India has recently ramped up it's vaccine production, as well as ordering further millions of doses from elsewhere.

I would imagine that anything the UK produces, after being distributed for use here and to fulfill existing contracts, is probably a drop in the ocean for India.
