Supplies ventilators to city hospitals on priority basis
OSD Dr. Vinod Rao is constantly monitoring the treatment facilities inside Covid hospitals and increase them as per need. On Sunday he visited AB Industries at Makarpura and request for urgent supply of ventilators, which they agreed to deliver on priority basis.
He said, AB Industries based in Makarpura which manufactures Max Proton Plus Ventilators has been one of the biggest contributers in their first against COVID. Two weeks back just on a telephonic request, as an extraordinary gesture, they handed over 120 Max Ventilators worth about Rs 8 Crores for temporary use for the next 3 months at a very token rent.
On Sunday they have arranged for another 100 Max Ventilators for Vadodara, and this time to be purchased through Gujarat Medical Services Corporation Limited. Dr. Rao visited AB Industries and requested them for urgent supply of ventilators. He said, despite orders from many States, they have agreed to deliver the Ventilators on priority in next one week. This would have otherwise taken at least a month’s delay.
He thanked Ashok Patel and his team for their unparalleled contribution in their fight against COVID. They are helping in saving
hundreds of lives over the past few days.
