Ford Announces that the Ventilator Order is about to be Completed
In recent days, the global pandemic of the new coronavirus has improved significantly, but the United States is an exception. The daily number of confirmed diagnoses in the United States is still rising geometrically. For this reason, Ford is still working hard to create medical equipment for the safety of American social workers.
In order to solve the current shortage of medical equipment, the US government has submitted orders to Ford and General Motors to make the two companies produce ventilators for the US government. Both companies explained to the government that in order to smoothly provide ventilators to the society, they are already working hard to complete their previous orders, and will work hard to produce ventilators in the future to reduce the pressure on society.
Up to now, the two companies have provided more than 47,000 ventilators to the United States. These ventilators are used to treat patients infected with the new coronavirus.
According to data released by the U.S. government, there are 108,000 ventilators in the U.S., and 12,000 ventilators are working hard to provide.
The two companies and the U.S. government signed an agreement. This agreement is about the production of ventilators. By the end of August, 30,000 ventilators will need to be produced. The person in charge of GM said that GM has delivered 20,000 ventilators.
At the beginning of this year, both companies stated that they had increased the number of personnel on the production line with no less than 1,500 personnel deployed.
The person in charge of General Motors also stated that car production will slowly resume, after which the production line for ventilators will be transferred to a factory owned by Ventec in Kokomo, Indiana.
