Cong seeks judicial probe into use of Dhaman-1 ventilators in Guj, says not certified by DCGI

The Congress on Saturday demanded a judicial probe into the use of a ventilator on COVID-19 patients in Gujarat that, it said, has not been approved by the DCGI, alleging the mortality rate was highest at the hospital these machines were installed. Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said almost six weeks after Dhaman-1 ventilators were installed at Ahmedabad Civil Hospital on April 4, doctors there sought more ventilators claiming these machines did not work on patients and were not capable. The Dhaman-1 ventilator has been developed by Rajkot-based firm Jyoti CNC which donated 866 of them to the state government last month in view of acute shortage of the machines, according to senior Gujarat government official. A row erupted when the Ahmedabad Civil Hospital wrote to the government, stating that the ventilators were not up to the mark, and sought sophisticated machines. The senior official, however, sought to put the controversy to rest, saying Dhaman-1 was as good as other such
