Doctors say outlook for COVID-19 patients on ventilators grim

The Aventa-M devices delivered by Russia to the United States in early April, the alleged fire of which led to the death of six people, have never “been used in American hospitals,” FEMA spokeswoman Janet Montesi said..

FEMA sent Russian devices to the states of New York and New Jersey, which are most affected by the outbreak of COVID-19, but as a result of the decrease in the number of infections, “these devices were not needed,” said Montesi..

States are now returning unused Russian vehicles to FEMA. Their further fate depends on the results of the investigation that the Russian authorities are currently conducting against Aventa-M, added Montesi..

The manufacturer of the devices, the Chelyabinsk Ural Instrument-Making Plant, confirmed that this medical equipment was produced at this enterprise and delivered to the St. Petersburg hospital of St. George.

KRET came under US sanctions in July 2014 due to Russian aggression in Ukraine.
