| @indiablooms | 23 Mar 2020, 10:41 am

New Delhi/IBNS:  Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra has said the company immediately begin work to explore how its factories could make ventilators.

The Mahindra Group which has also a presence in the hospitality sector and owns Mahindra Holidays, a network of holiday resorts, also offered to convert some of them to temporary quarantine facilities as India is slowly witnessing an increase in the number of COVID 19 cases over the past few days.

At present, the number of infected COVID 19 patients stands at 415.

Mahindra tweeted:"To help in the response to this unprecedented threat, we at the Mahindra Group will immediately begin work on how our manufacturing facilities can make ventilators. —At Mahindra Holidays, we stand ready to offer our resorts as temporary care facilities. (3/5)."

"A lockdown over the next few weeks will help flatten the curve & moderate the peak pressure on medical care. —However, we need to create scores of temporary hospitals & we have a scarcity of ventilators," he said.

COVID 19 virus is believed to have first emerged from China's Wuhan city and now it has spread in over more than 150 countries across the globe.
