Ontario sends 3,000 Brampton-made ventilators to India
Ventilators manufactured by a Brampton company are being sent to India to help with that country's COVID-19 crisis.
The ventilators produced by O-Two Medical Technologies Inc. are already part of a Government of Ontario supply of which Premier Doug Ford said 3,000 are on their way to India.
"Ontario will always stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our friends," said Ford adding that each ventilator costs $8,000.
A spokesperson for the company said workers at the facility located on Armthorpe Rd. are pleased their device will be helping the people of India.
O-Two Medical Technologies is a manufacturer of medical devices, focused primarily on emergency respiratory care and oxygen delivery.
The donation comes as the COVID crisis in India has reached more than 20 million cases nation-wide and 221,000 deaths.
