India Receives 100 Ventilators From US

New Delhi: The U.S. Government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has sent the first shipment of 100 brand-new, state-of-the-art ventilators to India to assist its fight against COVID-19.

The ventilators are compact and deployable and provide flexibility in treating patients affected by the virus.

USAID is working closely with the Government of India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the Indian Red Cross Society, and other relevant stakeholders in India and the United States to assist in the delivery, transportation, and placement of ventilators in select health care facilities throughout the country.
