Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a high-level meeting on Saturday, in which he took serious note of media reports about ventilators provided by the Centre lying unutilised in some states due to technical glitches.

The remarks come two-day after the Health Ministry dismissed reports suggesting that ventilators supplied by the Centre under the PM-CARES Fund to a state-run hospital in Faridkot were lying unused because of technical glitches.
