BCC President appeals for supplies to help India's Covid crisis
Dear Chamber colleague,
You will no doubt have seen the media coverage on the COVID-19 crisis in India, with shortages of oxygen and hospitals in Delhi and many other cities running out of beds due to a devastating second wave.

Baroness Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE
President, British Chambers of Commerce
