Director General of the Health Ministry Moshe Bar-Siman-Tov on Thursday contradicted the Knesset Research and Information Center report that said Israel only has 2,173 ventilators, some of which are either in use or malfunctioned.
“We have about 1,500 usable and available ventilators in stock,” he said. “And a total of 2,864 machines will be available in the near future.”
