PIB Fact check of The Wire's piece on ventilators in Gujarat leaves netizens baffled
Singh was quick to counter the allegation, calling it a fake fact check, and pointing out that the report in question had quoted doctors who had written to the state government, pointing out that the ventilators were “substandard”.
“Second, the Gujarat Health Secretary claims government of India through HLL Lifecare has given an order to purchase these faulty ventilators,” Singh tweeted.
In a follow-up tweet she added that the publication was not claiming the faulty ventilators were purchased by the gujarat government.
“It reports how despite complaints on faulty ventilators by doctors at the hospital, Gujarat government kept defending them. Like PIB is defending them now,” she added.
