Britain, one of several countries to announce sending help as India's health care system buckles under a huge surge in coronavirus cases, is dispatching more than 600 pieces of vital medical equipment.

In total, nine airline container loads of supplies, including 495 oxygen concentrators, 120 non-invasive ventilators and 20 manual ventilators, will be sent this week, according to the British High Commission in New Delhi.
