"The first batch - 9m installments - will be sent on Friday," Foreign Minister Dominique Raab told reporters, adding that he would go to countries such as Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Kenya and Jamaica.

Indonesia will receive 600.000 doses, 300.000 will be sent to Jamaica and 817.000 will go to Kenya, among other countries, the government said in a statement.
