As the outbreak of corona virus gets serious in India, it has affected manufacturing. Honda Cars India and Maruti Suzuki India have temporarily shut their manufacturing plants. At the wake of these incidents, Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group has announced that the group will immediately begin work on manufacturing facilities to produce ventilators.

With the pace that the numbers of COVID-19 are increasing, it is expected that there would be immense pressure on the healthcare systems and India may run short of ventilators.

Additionally, a Bengaluru based doctor, Sonal Asthana, MD suggests that 3D printed splitters for ventilators can be looked at as a possible solution to meet high demands of the equipment.

In, the Indian medical equipment manufacturing industry is gearing up for the surging demand, while other industries join in.
