Tesla Buys 1,255 Ventilators From China

It hasn’t taken long for people to begin asking how Elon Musk is preparing to help throughout this pandemic, In fact, more and more people are reprimanding celebrities about what they’re really doing to support…

Well, a few days ago the star has revealed exactly what he plans on doing. Although some questioned his ability to achieve it, it seems he has managed to pull it off.

There isn’t a person on the planet who doesn’t know who Elon Musk is. Being the founder, CEO and Chief Engineering Designer of SpaceX and Tesla, he has a colossal of things going for him.

“It worked in rehearsals… his cyber truck was a big miss”

After the fail through the presentation, Musk tweeted a video that was made in the beginning, when they had fortunately followed the stunt.

Notwithstanding this, Elon Musk is absolutely a man who knows what he’s doing… most of the time. Musk is a dangerously smart guy, and it wouldn’t offend us if the Cybertruck is the tomorrow of vehicles.

This week, Musk has shown in on the pandemic… And he isn’t thinking about sitting back.

Please repurpose your factory to make ventilators which are needed ASAP. I am a Tesla owner and love the company. You have to stop being an idiot about this. This is a massive disaster. Ask the doctors in the field.— Raja ‘Elon is not an idiot’ Abbas (@suhaylabbas) 

Earlier in the week, someone tweeted the star and told him to “stop being an idiot” about the virus, advising him to use his Tesla factory to make ventilators as immediately as attainable.

Musk’s response?

We will make ventilators if there is a shortage— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) 

“We will make ventilators if there is a shortage.”

Musk is obeying in the footsteps of other motor companies who are also agreeing to help.

But his proposition has hit the huge question of when? Because, as far as many health experts are involved, there will certainly be a deficiency of ventilators – so the point that Musk used the word “if” has been scouring people the wrong way.

In fact, people are less than happy with his answer.

Elon, WE NEED VENTILATORS, we need them asap. Right now, I have folks home SEWING medical masks, that is where we are at. What can you do? We are 3 days out of no masks, gowns, everything. MAYDAY!! #MillionMaskMayday— K. Sennholz MD (@MtnMD)

“Billionaires are useless,” wrote one angry user.

A few days ago, Elon Musk said his company is recognising building ventilators.

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 Musk (@elonmusk)

Now Tesla has been delivering ventilators rather. The company purchased 1,255 ventilators from China on Friday.

Thanks Tesla China team, China Customs Authority & LAX customs for acting so swiftly— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) 

And have shipped them all to Los Angeles. Musk acknowledged Tesla’s team in China, China’s Customs Authority and LAX customs for “acting so swiftly.”

California Governor, Gavin Newsom, said that 1,000 ventilators have arrived from Tesla.

The ventilators are very important to save more lives.

Today, Instacart and Amazon workers walked off the job because the companies profiting from their labor are endangering them, while workers at General Electric walked out demanding that their factory be converted to produce ventilators. Something important is happening.— Meagan Day (@meaganmday) 

A recent estimation from the Society of Critical Care Medicine said “960,000 people may need to be put on ventilators due to the outbreak,” and the U.S. only has about 200,000 of them.

Musk’s focus on ventilators came at the very time as Tesla had to close its factory in California.

Engineering update on the Tesla ventilator— Tesla (@Tesla) 

Other tech People have joined the battle against the virus.

#MDTisMobilizing with @elonmusk. Our collaboration with @Tesla / SpaceX is bearing fruit. @SpaceX is now making a vital component for critical care #ventilators — more vents sooner for #COVID19 patients. — Medtronic (@Medtronic) 

It’s nice to finally see big companies helping out where they can.

Musk isn’t the first celebrity to get repercussion about their part during this pandemic.

There is a shortage. Why aren’t you making them?— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) 

And people have been ready to point out the clear contrast between how stars and “normal people” are dealing with the outbreak.
