UK needs 'far far more' ventilators, PM Johnson says

LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Britain needs “far far more” ventilators to support patients with coronavirus in critical care.

“We have we think a good supply at the moment but we need to get far far more,” he said at a news conference on Sunday.

“That’s why there’s a huge national effort to equip ourselves not just with ventilators but with all the testing kits, the reagents, all the stuff that we’re going to need to beat this disease”
