Ford og GE vil levere 50.000 respiratorer på 100 dage

Ford Motor Company lover at kunne producere 50.000 respiratorer i løbet af 100 dage til behandling af patienter i USA. Det oplyser den amerikanske bilfabrikant mandag ifølge nyhedsbureauet Reuters. Produktionen skal foregå i samarbejde med General Electrics' enhed for medicinsk udstyr og begynder 20. april, hvor den vil foregå næsten hele døgnet rundt. Efter 100 dage forventer Ford og GE at have nået et en produktionskapacitet på 30.000 respiratorer om måneden.

Flot... Men hvem kan levere om 5-10-15-20 dage. Kan nogen i DK accelerer så hurtigt? Kan nogen det, bør de have Danmarks flotteste fortjenestemedalje af donningen eller frede 😁

"Elon Musk has promised to provide New York with hundreds of ventilators to help meet demand from the growing coronavirus outbreak. The Tesla chief executive said the first batch of donated machines would be delivered later on Friday"

"Mr Musk purchased 1,255 ventilators from three manufacturers - ResMed, Philips and Medtronic - last week. He said his company would be giving all its ventilators away "whether we buy them or build them"."

*"Earlier this month, Mr Musk pledged to reopen Tesla's gigafactory in Buffalo, New York - which builds solar cells - and repurpose it to manufacture additional ventilators.

""Giga New York will reopen for ventilator production as soon as humanly possible. We will do anything in our power to help the citizens of New York," he wrote on Twitter."

"Ford and General Motors are also intending to do so. But those arrangements hit a snag on Friday after US President Donald Trump accused the companies of overcharging for the machines"

*"President Donald Trump triggered the federal government’s wartime powers to compel General Motors to make ventilators needed to treat coronavirus patients, lashing out at the automaker for failing to act more quickly to produce the critical medical equipment."*

" Mr Trump said he moved to invoke the 1950s-era Defense Production Act, which gives the president power to force manufacturers to make needed equipment in national emergencies, after negotiations between Washington and GM broke down over the cost of the ventilator order"

"Tesla has already started producing ventilators in its Fremont, Calif., factory in collaboration with the medical supply company Medtronic. Tesla is utilizing its HVAC [Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning] capacity to manufacture one of Medtronic’s lower-end ventilators, which are easier to produce in an off-site facility than more sophisticated models."

"Earlier this week, Musk donated 1,255 ventilators—which he said he’d bought from “an oversupply” in China—to hospitals in California, where Tesla is headquartered."

The Tesla CEO has been fast at moving face masks, too, another essential medical resource in short supply.

Last week, he sent a truckload of 50,000 N95 face masks from Fremont to the home of a doctor working for the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) in Seattle shortly after learning that there’s a shortage of face masks in the area. The shipment was so expedient that its recipient, Dr. Kristina Adams Waldorf, had a hard time making room for the boxes when they arrived.

"It was just so, so fast,” Adams Waldorf told The Seattle Times.“I feel so, so good about being a small part of these donations. To be at this critical shortage of personal protective equipment is frightening. We can’t have our health-care system crumbling at this moment."

Spørgsmålet er mere hvor hurtig kan vi oplære en person til at betjene en sådan maskine. Hvis personen kun skal kunne betjene maskinen og intet andet og sker der noget tilkalde en læge hvor mange så?

Der er en mangel på tidsfornemmelse her. Det er NU der er brug for udstyr! 100 dage er godt 3 måneder eller 14 uger! I øjeblikket fordobles antallet smittede i USA for hver tredje dag. Der er her tale om ti gange en sådan periode. Hvis man man ikke har udstyr inden da, og ikke har fået styr på epedemien, så er det for sent. Når vi ser på hvor hurtigt dansk industri har kunnet levere, så er det indenfor ca. 10 dage. Det er nok en gang Trump's spil for galleriet der ikke hjælper de stakkels amerikanere ret meget.
