  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Tesla Inc will reopen its New York factory “as soon as humanly possible” to manufacture ventilators for COVID-19, disease caused by the coronavirus, patients, Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said on Twitter on Wednesday, March 25.

    Medtronic Plc Chief Executive Officer Omar Ishrak told CNBC earlier in the day that the medical device maker has started working with Tesla, which is fast on track to start production of ventilators at Fremont.

    Governments across the globe have appealed to automakers and aerospace companies to help procure or make ventilators and other medical equipment.

    Tesla had bought hospital ventilators in China and shipped them to the United States, Musk had said on Tuesday.
