Ventilator Export Decision Raises Serious Questions

Ventilator Export

The high-level GoM on Covid-19 has agreed to the proposal of the Health Ministry to approve the export of ventilators manufactured in the country.

The high-level GoM on Covid-19 has agreed to the proposal of the Health Ministry to approve the export of ventilators manufactured in the country.

The decision of Union Health Ministry has come to a surprise for many with the increasing cases of corona cases in the country with more than 55,000 corona cases in the country in past 24 hours. Also, the number of corona cases in the country has remained more than 50,000 per day for the past four days.

However, the government has claimed that the mortality rate of Covid-19 in the country is decreasing, which means that very few are on ventilators.

But, the central government has in itself failed to provide ventilators to the states demanding it. Even NDA ally Nitish Kumar has demanded 100 ventilators, which has not yet been met by the government. Yet, the government’s decision to export the ventilators have raised eye-brows of many in the national arena.

The Indian Express has published a report of Pune, where almost 10 hospitals were not having ventilators for treatment. If this is the situation of a city like Pune, one may understand what could have been the infrastructural facilities in the smaller towns of Maharashtra.

Also, there had been reports of India getting ventilators from France through a special jet just four days ago. If India was not having shortage of ventilators, why did the country imported it from France?
