With the ongoing global Covid-19 crisis, survival of patients infected with the Covid-19 virus depends on the availability of medical ventilators. Global demand for ventilators has just reached 1 million machines that will be required to satisfy the basic requirement of affected countries ( Due to this peak demand, existing manufacturing capacity is fully booked months in advance and various new entrants are attempting to enter the market with untested, unproven, and dangerous devices that put patients' lives at risk.
