Anand Mahindra Group ties up with PSUs to mass-produce ventilators
With the country gearing up to give a tough fight against coronavirus, multi-billion dollar enterprise, Mahindra Group has said that it will do every bit to help in the making available ventilators, which are essential to healthcare of infected patients.
The company is working on two fronts — ramping up manufacturing by simplifying design so that large production can take place.
Further, the company is also working on an automated version of the Bag Valve Mask ventilator which is also known as Ambu bag.
Commenting on the developments, Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra Group, said, “This could be a game changer in quickly providing large numbers of low cost life savers, particularly when ICU ventilators are still scarce.” In his bid to help the government in fighting with the coronavirus, Anand Mahindra had also announced that he will contribute all of his salary to the Mahindra Foundation created fund.
Mahindra & Mahindra group had earlier offered setting up of Club Mahindra Holidays’ resorts as temporary care facilities as coronavirus cases are expected to surge in the country.
