The government of India has approved the export of 2,800,000 packets of paracetamol to the UK. The medicine will be distributed to leading UK supermarkets and retailers.
International Trade Secretary, Liz Truss MP:
“Coronavirus is the largest threat we have all faced in decades, so it’s imperative that we work together to continue global trade and keep supply chains open. This will mean nearly 3 million more packets of paracetamol on British supermarket shelves.
“I’d like to extend a big thank you to officials both in the UK and India who worked hard on this agreement and I look forward to working with India and other countries soon to ensure we beat COVID-19.”
