GM to build 30,000 ventilators to help fight coronavirus pandemic

GM will make 30,000 ventilators in five months to help US fight the coronavirus pandemic. It will deliver the machines to the Strategic National Stockpile by Aug end through a $489.4mn contract with the federal Department of Health & Human Services. This is the first pact for ventilator production under the Defense Production Act, which President Trump had invoked two weeks ago.

As I've said before, it takes time to ramp up production in a new facility, get parts on order, get people trained, and get test equipment installed and ready. I thought best case, maybe we'd start seeing some units in June, but it looks like August is more realistic.
