This was broadcast on Channel One by the head of the Federal Biomedical Agency Veronika Skvortsova.

“This week, thanks to the team work of the institutions of the Federal Biomedical Agency, primarily the Burnazyan Center, and the Rostec state corporation, the Schwabe corporation, we managed to create experimental devices within a few days that allow ventilating from two to three, four patients, ”said Skvortsova.

Earlier, the Russian Cabinet allocated to the Ministry of Industry and Trade 7.5 billion rubles from the reserve fund for the purchase of mechanical ventilation apparatuses and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.

Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that there are 40 thousand ventilation devices in the country, which may be necessary for seriously ill patients in the treatment of pneumonia caused by coronavirus.
