As the government of Canada tries to identify equipment that can quickly be sent to India to assist in battling the Covid-19 crisis from its emergency store, the province of Ontario is gifting India a consignment of 3000 ventilators.
This development was announced by Ontario Premier, Doug Ford. While making the announcement, the Premier tweeted: “Ontario will always stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our friends.”
Ford added that the province would send 3,000 Ontario-made medical ventilators, worth 8,000 Canadian dollars each.
The ventilators are produced by the company O-Two Medical Technologies Inc., which is headquartered in Brampton, in the Greater Toronto Area.
