British doctors say Chinese ventilators could be lethal for COVID-19 patients

British doctors have warned that 250 ventilators the United Kingdom bought from China risk causing “significant patient harm, including death”.

For some survivors, coronavirus complications can last a 'lifetime'
China has been selling medical equipment to many governments which are still trying to curb the spread of the coronavirus that has made their healthcare systems collapse.

The doctors wrote a letter, that the UK Department of Health and Social Care emailed to the media. The letter said that the Shangrila 510 model made by Beijing Aeonmed Co. Ltd., one of China’s major ventilator manufacturers, had a problematic oxygen supply, could not be cleaned properly, had an unfamiliar design and a confusing instruction manual, and were built for use in ambulances, not hospitals.

We believe that if used, significant patient harm, including death, is likely. We look forward to the withdrawal and replacement of these ventilators with devices better able to provide intensive care ventilation for our patients, the letter reads.

The UK has the second-highest official Covid-19 death toll in Europe with 26,771 deaths.
