GM wrote in a statement today that it would take to deliver the first ventilators next month, at a rate of 10,000/month. New York alone says it needs 40,000.

Far from clear from @GM's release:
* When next month is the first delivery of ventilators expected?
* Will that date arrive before N.Y.'s expected apex of infection?
* Where are they are going?
* How will they be distributed?
My colleague @BBuchman_CNS is on the story.
Clarification: GM plans to "ramp up" to a rate of 10K ventilators a month.
Unclear how many are arriving and to where in the batch expected to be delivered sometime in April.
