Tesla is making plans to retool its sun panel manufacturing facility in Buffalo, New York, to fabricate scientific ventilators, CEO Elon Musk mentioned in a Wednesday tweet.
“Giga New York will reopen for ventilator manufacturing once humanly imaginable,” Musk tweeted. “We can do the rest in our energy to lend a hand the voters of New York.”
Tesla is making the ventilators in partnership with Medtronic. Medtronic CEO Omar Ishrak showed the connection in a Wednesday interview with CNBC.
