Rocket builder Virgin Orbit designed and built a ventilator it plans to mass produce to help hospitals fight the coronavirus crisis in the United States - BREAKING:  https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/30/bransons-virgin-orbit-to-begin-coronavirus-ventilator-mass-production.html 

″[It is] a very, very simple and robust design that we can get out to the people who are in the most need, and the hospitals that are in the most need, of devices like these very, very quickly,” Virgin Orbit’s @KevZag says:  https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/30/bransons-virgin-orbit-to-begin-coronavirus-ventilator-mass-production.html 

An industry source told me that, once its device is FDA approved, Virgin Orbit expects to be able to produce 100,000s of the ventilator devices each week in the near future.  https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/30/bransons-virgin-orbit-to-begin-coronavirus-ventilator-mass-production.html
