The Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital on Friday received 10 new ventilators from the Tamil Nadu Medical Services Corporation. The ventilators, which will be used exclusively at the COVID-19 ward, will help further expand the COVID-19 facilities available at the hospital.
A total of 80 ventilators were already available at the COVID-19 ward at the MGMGH. The addition of the newly delivered ventilators would further enhance the treatment facilities at the GH, doctors at the GH said.
