Saskatchewan sending 100 ventilators to India

The provincial government is sending 100 ventilators to India as they battle a major surge of COVID-19 cases.

According to a release from the province, there has been an excess supply of ventilators to support patients in Saskatchewan, which includes more than 700 critical care, subacute and non-invasive ventilators.

The 100 being sent to India will draw from subacute and critical care supply chains, leaving Saskatchewan with over 600 ventilators remaining.

Premier Scott Moe says in a statement that India has grown to be a close ally to Saskatchewan, making it more important for the province to assist the country in their time of need.
