Elon Musk, who was originally an outspoken skeptic of the severity of the coronavirus outbreak, has donated more than 1,000 ventilators to officials in Los Angeles to meet the demand.

The Tesla CEO said he helped acquire 1,255 of the machines from China last week and arranged them to be air-shipped to Los Angeles.

No one’s pretending that he made them.

They were most likely purchased from China.

And if cahoots means that they like Elon then sure. They cahoots him a lot!

Yup, China had an oversupply, so we bought 1255 FDA-approved ResMed, Philips & Medtronic ventilators on Friday night & airshipped them to LA. If you want a free ventilator installed, please let us know!

“Elon Musk: how about this? I told you a few days ago he was likely to have 1,000 ventilators this week,” California Governor Gavin Newsom told reporters on Monday. “They arrived in Los Angeles and Elon Musk is already working with the hospital association and others to get those ventilators out in real time. It’s an heroic effort.”

Governor Newsom also stated that six California companies have offered their facilities to manufacture gowns and he’s in conversation with another 25 providers that want to start 3D printing masks for health-care workers.
