Elon Musk Has Delivered A Ton of Ventilators To Aid With Global Health Crisis

Just days after Elon Musk said he was ready for Tesla to start making ventilators to combat and aid medical professionals in the fight against coronavirus, he’s delivered a handful already.

The 48-year-old engineer and Tesla CEO revealed that 1,255 ventilators have been donated and rushed to California hospitals.

“Yup, China had an oversupply, so we bought 1255 FDA-approved ResMed, Philips & Medtronic ventilators on Friday night & airshipped them to LA. If you want a free ventilator installed, please let us know!” Elon shared on Twitter.

California Governor Gavin Newsom confirmed the donation in a press conference earlier in the day.

“They arrived in Los Angeles and Elon Musk is already working with the hospital association and others to get those ventilators out in real time. It’s an heroic effort,” he said.

Earlier, Elon also promised to hop in on the urgency to make N95 masks for the medial professionals as well.
