Tokyo (VNA) - Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Vu Hong Nam took receipt of two Eliciae MV20 ventilators manufactured by Japan’s Metran Co., Ltd at a ceremony in Tokyo on April 20.

They are part of a batch of the 2,000 ordered by the Van Thinh Phat Group and the Van Lang University as donations to the Vietnamese Government in the fight against COVID-19.

In his address at the handover ceremony, Ambassador Nam thanked the two donors for their support and Metran’s efforts and dedication in researching and manufacturing the machines.

The Eliciae MV20 ventilators use the most advanced technology in the industry, are easy to use and environmentally-friendly, and meet the examination and treatment needs of hospitals not only in big cities but also in remote areas.

Apart from funding the purchase of the 2,000 ventilators, the Van Thinh Phat Group and the Van Lang University have also provided financial assistance for the effective maintenance of the machines and the training of Vietnamese doctors in their use.

Ambassador Nam, on behalf of the two donors, also presented 200,000 USD to the Vietnamese Association in Japan to help the community overcome difficulties caused by the pandemic./.
