Chandigarh, June 19

A 22-year-old Kashmiri man has invented a ventilator made only from scrap parts like a soap box, a DVD drive and bottle cap.

"The prototype is wholly made of recyclable materials, the scraps which I had at home, like soap boxes, a dry fruit box, a CD driver and a motor from an old printer," Waseem Ahmad Nadaf of Srinagar told AFP.

Although still a prototype, Nadaf hopes his creation can contribute to India's battle against Covid-19.

"My whole idea to make the ventilator was, when it is time of emergency, how we can make ventilators on a local level, so that we can help local people, and the same model can be replicated in different regions," Nadaf said.
