With the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus, countries are scampering to do everything to mitigate this situation and even fight back. Following India’s export of the anti-malaria drug, hydroxychloroquine to the United States, India is reported to next export 3 million units of paracetamol to the UK following talks.

The same was reported by the foreign minister of the country on Wednesday.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the UK Government took to Twitter to share the message saying, “The United Kingdom to receive nearly 3 million units of paracetamol following talks with India. This will arrive in the next two weeks and will be stocked in the UK’s leader supermarkets.”

The Prime Minister of UK, Boris Johnson, who himself tested positive for the virus was discharged from the hospital after being cared for by the NHS staff. In a video that he shared, Johnson thanked all the immigrant nurses who were responsible for saving his life.

India, which is considered as one of the largest producer of drugs and pharmaceutical products lifted their ban on exports following threats of retaliation from the United States.

United Kingdom currently has over 90,000 confirmed cases and over 12,000 reported deaths because of Covid-19.
