FUCZ: Our aim is to make functional ventilators available to hospitals

Press release

SARAJEVO, November 24 (FENA) - With all the efforts we have made in recent days to deliver ventilators, which the FBiH Civil Protection Administration (FUCZ) purchased from China in April, to hospitals as soon as possible and put them in operation, we are constantly in a situation to defend ourselves from attacks by individuals and certain media in which they claim that they are faulty devices, that they are not for patients with coronavirus, and that a few days ago they were installed by unprofessional engineers, an unauthorized company, and that we play with human lives in Federation of BiH, said the FBiH Civil Protection Administration.

As they emphasize in the statement, since these are extremely dangerous claims that can cause panic and fear among citizens and patients, they are again forced to react and emphasize that none of them is playing with human lives and that they approach this whole process extremely responsibly, from hiring a service technician, through manufacturer's warranties, to certificates issued to hospitals during installation.

“We repeat and emphasize: ventilators are installed by a company that has a business cooperation agreement with a company that is the only authorized representative and repairer of manufacturers from China. The validation of the ventilator is guaranteed by the manufacturer and their representative, i.e. an authorized service technician. The correctness of the ventilator is guaranteed by the certificate of the company that installs them, and the use is in accordance with all the specifications provided by the manufacturer, for which the service technicians have trained doctors,” it is sad in the statement.
