‘We Will Do Whatever Is Needed to Help’


Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said his company’s New York factory will open “as soon as humanly possible” to produce ventilators that can help treat severe cases of COVID-19.

Musk, who announced the move on Twitter, said that his staff would “do anything in our power to help the citizens of New York” during the outbreak of novel coronavirus that has resulted in a “pause” of all non-essential services. There have been over 30,000 positive cases confirmed in the state.
