The District administration handed over eight ventilators lying with the Civil Hospital Mohali to private hospitals. Four ventilators each have been provided to Max and Fortis hospital Mohali, to be pressed into operation with immediate effect for the COVID patients, informed Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan.
