 The U.S. government canceled the ventilator order, saying the inventory is full suppliers are not willing to


According to the Wall Street Journal, the Department of Health said that there are about 120000 ventilators in the strategic national reserve of the United States, which has reached the maximum capacity, enough to deal with the epidemic. As of mid August, the Department has distributed more than 15000 ventilators across the United States and will continue if there is demand.

According to the report, the U.S. government has terminated orders with two medical device companies, vyaire and Hamilton, including 38000 ventilators, which were originally scheduled for delivery by the end of 2020. However, neither company responded. In addition, Philipss $640 million order has been terminated and will not deliver the remaining ventilators. A Philips spokesman said a total of 40000 ventilators were included in the order, with 12300 already delivered. He also revealed that the U.S. government had signed a total of 10 federal orders, which would have bought 187000 ventilators by the end of 2020.

According to the Commissions report, the government paid about $500 million more in its order with Philips. However, Philips responded that the government did not give any formal reasons for the cancellation. We do not accept the conclusions of the Commissions report. We believe that this report does not reflect all the information we have provided, the spokesman said As early as April, Democrats questioned the federal governments massive purchase of ventilators, saying that while the government forced companies to increase production, many hospitals did not get medical equipment. In August, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported a shortage of ventilators in the U.S. market. However, US media pointed out that the FDAs assessment of ventilator supply does not include materials in the national reserve. At the same time, the Ministry of Health said: if states, tribes and other places need ventilators and cannot be purchased from the market, they can continue to go through the formal process of applying for federal assistance.
