The reality is that doses were not diverted to the UK from developing countries, unless the assurances given by SII were false.Blackrock Bullet wrote: ↑Wed Mar 24, 2021 3:06 pm For a facility which was intended to provided doses to India and the developing world. The CEO explicitly stated that he did not believe Covax would reach targets. The reality is that these were redirected to western countries, with the UK seemingly the ones to take that up, ahead of developing countries. You either wear that or you don't, but that's reality.

SII are also seeking clearance to supply to the EU which is touched on at the end of that article.
Your quote re 4m doses coming from the EU from an apparently reliable source explains why you are convinced it is true. I have found one other article of similar vintage that says the same.
I have done you the courtesy of researching your position, and despite spending more time on it than is healthy, more current articles make no mention of this 4m. The only related references I can find are to the EU failing to prove that AZ has exported EU developed vaccines to the UK.
Given that one of the key complaints against AZ from the EU is that they have exported to the UK, had AZ vaccines been imported to the UK as well as Pfizer, you'd think both would still be being reported rather than just Pfizer.
Given that the situation has been dynamic for some time, I'd appreciate it if you'd return the courtesy and point to something more current that refutes the articles I quoted.
