The Corona virus pandemic is taking a huge toll on the whole world causing panic on so many countries and claiming thousands of life. The United Kingdom has placed an order for thousands of simple ventilators to enhance the treatment and help combat the global pandemic. The simple model ventilator ordered by the country is one known as Blue-sky. The reason for the sudden rejection of the Blue sky ventilators is that more advanced and complex devices are needed in order to treat the global pandemic effectively. On Sunday about 710 new deaths were reported in the UK within 24 hours.
Matt Hancock, a Health secretary when speaking on Sunday said “The critical expansion is partly because we have a record number of ventilators”. Formula one is one of the companies whose ventilators were ordered by the United Kingdom. Most of their ventilators were built in a few days and delivered to hospitals in the UK. Professor Mervyn Singer is a UCLH critical health consultant, and according to him “These devices will help to save lives by ensuring that ventilators, a limited resource are used only for the most severely ill”. Although the technology is very effective it has been reported that any leak around the mask could spray dropper from the patient to the staffs.
While addressing the public the UK spokesman said that the country was no longer in support of the production of Blue sky Ventilators. While adding that “We are continuing to work at unprecedented speed with a number of other manufactures to scale up UK production of ventilators “. The prime minister of the United kingdom Boris Johnson, who was infected with the deadly virus was recently moved out of the intensive care. The UK currently has a death toll of 7,978 deaths with a total number of 65,077 infected cases. The country currently has no close end sight yet for its restrictions and lockdown.
