On Tuesday, the 31st of March 2020, Chief Executive of the Menlo Park, CA-based e-vehicle industry tycoon Tesla Inc., American billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk said in a tweet that the front-runner in the highly congested electric vehicle industry, Tesla Inc.
had additional FDA-approved ventilators which could be used in hospitals of California-region for free of cost. On top of that, adding that the ventilators, a machine that helps an infected lung inhale air mechanically, would be free to use and there would be no additional shipping cost as well, Musk said in a tweet on Tuesday (March 31st), “Device & shipping cost are free.
Only requirement is that the vents are needed immediately for patients, not stored in a warehouse. Please me or @Tesla know”. In point of fact, latest remark from the Tesla head came as a fresh breather for a slew of struggling US hospitals which pleaded repeatedly over the past few weeks for more ventilators alongside other medical equipment to deal with compounded coronavirus cases, in particular in the elderly, however, while being asked over the subject matter, a spokesman for Tesla Inc.
had declined to comment on how many ventilators Musk’s warehouses had to offer.
We have extra FDA-approved ventilators. Will ship to hospitals worldwide within Tesla delivery regions. Device & shipping cost are free.
