The misunderstanding of the ventilator issue has reached epic proportions, it’s nearly all fake news and misdirected. We do need ventilators but not just any ventilator, the general public are woefully ill informed, virtually illiterate.
The ventilators that have been ordered are a new design specifically aimed at this disease. We don’t have enough trained staff and beds for high end equipment. To understand the issue you need to read the spec drawn up by clinicians to enable continuous use outside an ICU.
The NHS has ordered the required units and manufacturing is under way. Mercedes UCLH have a great solution, as does OxVent. GKN Rolls Royce are working on a paired back ventilator, Penlon and Smiths Industries have an enhanced CPAP device in production.
If you’ve not read the brief & why we’ve taken the current route you really can’t lash out. There are many stories about ventilators & suppose supporting evidence that concerns the Twittersphere but once examined more closely they all fall apart.

The NHS knows what it is doing.
