Elon Musk has announced that he plans to reopen Gigafactory New York to help produce ventilators for COVID-19 patients.
Gigafactory New York was originally shut down by Tesla in regards to lockdown orders. Musk will open the factory back up after announcing that Tesla would send out 250,000 N95 masks and expend resources for the manufacturing of ventilators for hospitals.
Hospitals are desperately trying to tend to patients in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. In doing so, doctors are beginning to run out of the resources needed to perform their jobs properly. Musk stated the factory will reopen to make more ventilators available.
