Pakistan is now producing its own ventilators

Pakistan has released the first batch of locally manufactured ventilators. The ventilators are entirely made in Pakistan. Currently, 1,603 ventilators are available at government hospitals treating COVID-19 patients.

“The first batch of ventilators consists of 8 to 10 ventilators. Three more designs of the machines are also in the final phase of development”, Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry said in his video tweet. The respiratory ventilator is a significant device needed to fight the coronavirus, and the production of the breathing apparatus will strengthen the health infrastructure of our country.

Prime Minister Imran Khan visited National Radio & Telecommunication Corporation (NRTC) at Haripur today to inaugurate the production facility of first-ever indigenously developed ventilators.

It is indeed good news for all Pakistanis.
