L&T has procured and supplied 24 ventilators in an effort to immediately alleviate the shortage of medical equipment in South Gujarat. In the back-drop of the increased numbers of positive cases requiring ventilator support, L&T provided the high-end ventilators to SMIMER, Civil and other dedicated COVID-19 hospitals in South Gujarat.
The critical medical equipment was handed over to MP and Gujarat BJP President, Mr. C.R Patil, in the presence of Shri M Thennaresan (CEO, CSR Authority, Gandhinagar), Shri Banchchanidhi Pani (Commissioner-SMC), Dr. Dhaval Patel (DM & Collector- Surat) and Smt Ardra Agrawal (DM & Collctor-Navsari), Shri Sandip Desai (District BJP President), Smt Zankhanaben Patel (MLA-Choryasi), Shri Mukesh Patel (MLA-Olpad) and Mr.Atik Desai (VP CAO, L&T - Hazira).
With the urgency of augmenting the medical infrastructure and capacity, Shri M Thennarasan requested L&T to provide high-end ventilators to dedicated COVID-19 hospitals. Acting swiftly, L&T’s management delivered 24 units of the Allied Meditec 1700 ventilator units with ABIPAP with stand and accessories, as a part of its philanthropic response to help fight the devastating second wave of COVID-19 in Gujarat. L&T also distributed masks to various panchayats. Earlier this week, L&T also announced that it will soon start delivering 22 oxygen generators to various hospitals in India, where the scarcity is most acute.
