Russia mulls ban on foreign medical equipment

Many fear a partial ban would deprive patients of life-saving equipment and supplies.

Russia is considering a partial ban on foreign medical equipment, as it faces more crippling sanctions over the Ukraine crisis.

Up to 80 percent of all medical supplies are thought to be imported – many of them life-saving equipment like blood transfusion kits and infant incubators.

Al Jazeera’s Peter Sharp reports from Moscow, where there is widespread concern that a sudden ban will deprive patients of life-saving equipment.
