New Wuhan Doctor Speaks Out From Ground Zero (Covid-19 - Coronavirus
Mar 21, 2020

(Youtube channel Daniel Dumbrill)

This Doctor form Wuhan discusses how the ICU for Covid-19 in Wuhan is managed.
One thing not described here but the terms are mentioned "red zone" and "green zone" is that they divided the hospitals into these two zones. Medical staff and patients of the Red Zone (Covid-19) are completely separate and don't cross into the green zone. Doctors are assigned one of these zones exclusively. Many other finer details also discussed on masks, PPD, shift structure, staff meals, etc.
Please spread this video as widely and to as many higher ups as possible if you think there is anything of value here. They have learned a lot through trial and error probably

Parts shortage may pull the plug on ventilator-making

Flight ban hits supply of sensors, chips and micro controllers from China, critical for manufacturing Raghu Krishnan | ETtech | March 24, 2020, 07:22 IST

India’s efforts to shore up manufacturing of ventilators to deal with the rapid spread of Covid-19 infections may unravel in the absence of a local electronics components industry.

The ban on international flights has made worse the issue, with manufacturers struggling to lift sensors, chips and controllers from suppliers in China.

AgVa Healthcare, which makes ventilators at one-fifth the cost of imported ones, says the flight ban has hit supply of sensors, chips and micro controllers from China, critical to building ventilators in large numbers. The company is looking to scale up production to 20,000 units to meet the growing demand.

“The electronic components are ready at Shenzhen. They are unable to ship it to us because of the flight ban,” said Prof Diwakar Vaish, cofounder of AgVa. “If we don’t get it, our production will be hit.”
