Tesla to Fight Coronavirus Outbreak

The US has already surpassed China in the number of coronavirus cases. As of today, there are 735,010 coronavirus cases, 34,804 deaths, 156,122 have recovered. Therefore, more measures to protect Americans are necessary, both regulatory actions and voluntary efforts from those who can help. Companies from various industries do what they can to somehow support the county in this difficult situation. Tesla is no exception.

On March 22, the U.S. President Donald Trump asked Tesla, as well as General Motors Company (NYSE: GM), and Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) to come into rescue by producing much-needed ventilators. Previously, Elon Musk tweeted that he had a fruitful discussion with Medtronic on the production of ventilators. He also announced reopening the New York Gigafactory for manufacturing.

Ventilators are the medical equipment essential to help coronavirus patients. Currently, there are about 162,000 ventilators in the United States. An additional 12,700 are in the emergency medical supplies reserves.

Because of COVID-19, Tesla had to reduce the number of employees at its Fremont California facility. Earlier, the Bay Area’s local sheriffs’ department called this factory a “nonessential business.”
