On Friday, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said that it has given orders to Public Sector Undertakings to provide ventilators in order to handle the surge in novel coronavirus cases in the country.

Joint Health Secretary of the Health Ministry Lav Agarwal said, “The government is taking preemive and proactive approach to tackle the situation. In order to upgrade the number of ventilators in the country,” adding “We have given an order to PSU to provide 10,000 ventilators.
