Covid-19: In many states, ventilators lie unused & defunct as netas bicker
While most states said they do not have trained personnel to operate ventilators, others compned of unavailability of parts like humidifier kits and nozzles that are essential to run them.
Many even said that they had ventilators but no ICU facilities or adequate space to install them. Doctors in many states are not using them, fearing they may malfunction, endangering lives of patients.
TOI found out that only 83 of the 320 ventilators that three medical colleges in Punjab received under the PM Cares scheme, were functional. And, out of these 83, as many as 48 were not put to use as they were repaired recently and doctors were apprehensive of their efficacy.
In Bihar, almost half of the 109 ventilators sent to 13 districts are lying defunct because of lack of trained personnel. Sources in UP health department said about 20% of the 200 ventilators UP received are lying unused.
We can't blame Modi for this too can we?!! Pure incompetent state go nments and hospital management !!

What a sorry state of affair. Of course, blame Mr. Modi for this too.
It's easy to blame someone else then to take responsibility for ones own inability and failures!!!
In most cases ventilators were procured but never installed.
EVEN AFTER GETTING MONEY FROM PM FUND TO BUY VENTILATORS, THESE STATE GOVERNMENT DO NOT USE IT. THIS IS THE STATE OF ADMINISTRATION IN MOST STATES. THEN BLAME MODI FOR EVERYTHING COS MODI HAS NOT FIXED THE VENTILATORS IN THEIR HOSPITAL. THE LIES SPREAD BY THE OPPOSITION EVEN THE GOD WILL BELIEVE IT
States like Delhi, Ker, Maharashtra etc. are behaving in a selfish way.
What special training is needed to operate these machines and how long will it take to teach this ?
They rely on MODI to do everything. Installation, training, spare parts, money to operate, money to clean daily. State and hospitals have no responsibility to take... shame
Ventilators are lying unused but states clamour for more ventilator supply from the Centre.
Be responsible, Public is losing lives and po iticians are making merry.
All duffers.. all expects MODI will install ventilators, do repair, cleaning.. God save this country
Go nment says there is a lack of doctors but doesn’t provide us the opportunity to become one. Medical seats are as low so 50000 for govt collages for the 15 lakh candidates sitting.
It is absurd that ruling state Go nment po itical leaders are blindly blaming the central Go nment, especially PM cares.
Now what these state expects modi to come and install ventilators and find a place in hospital where it should be used. Cant the states use online methods to train the staff?
very bad central go nment... sent all defective ventilators to avoid responsibility..shame
Some idiots still blame to Modi, because it is their by birth issue.
Everything's should be done by Modi,rest will only watch and blame.
Blame Modi for everything and keep praising those failed state go nments. Height of stupidity with the media and presstitutes that repeatedly accusing Modi but not telling the truth of actual faults lying with whom.
That is tragedy of our country. If vir s is dging in measure, the mess, mismanagement in our country is dging ten times. What a shame.
the tragedy of our country. No unity ever
