CMC has been able to set up new COVID ICU beds at Kannigapuram. Staff worked hard, yet again, to get this set up as quickly as possible. First finding suppliers with the equipment we need, then purchasing it and processing it when it arrives. Engineering staff, doctors and nurses then help to set it up and test the equipment.

Not all the equipment was in place when these photos were taken. Ventilators, pumps and monitors are some of the pieces of equipment that need to be tested and set up before patients can be admitted.
