New Delhi: As promised by US President Donald Trump to co-operate India in the fight against Covid-19, the much-awaited ventilators donated by US President will arrive in India on Monday. About 100 high technology ventilators and a life saving medical equipment will reach India in the first phase as a donation from America. These ventilators have been manufactured by Zoll US-based firm and are arriving from Chicago in the US.
A senior government official said, “On Monday, about 100 ventilators are arriving from the United States as a donation. Ventilators would come to India by Air India flight. This is entirely managed by the India Red Cross Society.”
The official said further that once the ventilators would arrive in India, there is a small inaugural function at IRCS after which these ventilators would be distributed to hospital for patient care.
