“Within the space of four months we have gone from not producing any ventilators at all to having the first units in production. The National Ventilator Project is a great example of partnership and innovation, and what we can achieve when we work together toward common objectives. With prototypes approved, funding raised, and component supply lines secured, manufacturing has begun. The project has also identified that we have the industrial capacity to scale up production for exporting ventilators to other African countries should the need arise.”
Ebrahim Patel – Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition.
