Vietnam receives two made-in-Japan ventilators for COVID-19 fight

VOV.VN - Two Eliciae MV20 ventilators manufactured by Japan’s Metran Co., Ltd were presented to Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Vu Hong Nam at a hand-over ceremony in Tokyo on April 20.

The two machines are part of a batch of the 2,000 ordered by the Van Thinh Phat Group and the Van Lang University as donations to the Vietnamese Government to help combat the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.

In his remarks at the handover ceremony, Ambassador Nam thanked the two donors for their support.

Being considered easy to use, the Eliciae MV20 ventilators use the most advanced technology and meet the examination and treatment needs of hospitals in major cities as well as  in remote areas.

Apart from funding the purchase of the 2,000 ventilators, the Van Thinh Phat Group and the Van Lang University have also offered financial assistance to the effective maintenance of the machines and the training of Vietnamese doctors in their use.

Ambassador Nam, on behalf of the two donors, also presented US$200,000 to the Vietnamese Association in Japan to help the community overcome difficulties caused by the ongoing pandemic.
