    "We are sending the actual mechanical parts that are needed for the machinery they have to build a vaccine, and that is being done as well," he said.

    The president said he had discussed with Prime Minister Modi on when the US would be able to send actual vaccines to India.

    "The problem is right now, we have to make sure we have other vaccines like Novavax and others coming on probably, and I think we will be in a position to be able to share vaccines as well as know-how with other countries who are in real need," he said.

    "I might add when we were in a bind in the very beginning, India helped us," Joe Biden added.

    India is currently struggling with a second wave of the pandemic with more than 3,00,000 daily new coronavirus cases being reported in the past few days, and hospitals are reeling under a shortage of medical oxygen and beds.
