Elon Musk: Should Have 1000 Ventilators Next Week, + 250,000 N95 Masks For Hospitals Tomorrow — CleanTechnica Exclusive

March 21st, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel said on MSNBC on Friday, March 20, that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk told him it would probably take 8–10 weeks to get ventilator production started at his factories (he's working on this at Tesla and SpaceX). I reached out to Musk for clarification on that topic and he replied that, "We have 250k N95 masks. Aiming to start distributing those to hospitals tomorrow night. Should have over 1000 ventilators by next week."
