A local company has started manufacturing emergency beds for the use of COVID-19 patients, a statement from the Ministry of Industries said.

 “Coronavirus has taught a lesson to the entire world. The ideological theories imposed on us by Europe are proven wrong. We will benefit only from what is locally manufactured. We should be ready to strengthen our manufacturing base once we get over this crisis,” he said.
