President Trump on Friday vowed that the US would manufacture or otherwise procure 100,000 badly needed ventilators to treat critically ill coronavirus patients within 100 days.
“In the next 100 days, we will either make or get in some form over 100,000 additional units. In the next 100 days we will receive over three times the number of ventilators made during a regular year in the United States,” Trump said during the daily briefing of the Coronavirus Task Force at the White House.
Trump also repeated his contention that that many ventilators might not be needed.
“I think their estimates are high … they could be extremely high,” he said about governors’ requests for thousands of ventilators, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s request for 30,000 units.
Trump said that if the US finds itself with a surplus it cold share units with other countries, such as Spain, Italy and the UK.
The president also said that Boeing had also agreed to use three of its massive 787 Dreamliners to transport ventilators and other vital supplies to wherever they are needed.
“Boeing is also offering us the use of what they call their cargo plane, the largest plane in the world,” he said, displaying a photo of the aircraft.
“That can take anything. The biggest in the world. They are letting us use that for the distribution of product all over the country especially the heavy product or large quantities of product. Boeing will dedicate up to three planes to the mission of flying medical supplies anywhere we need it,” he said.
Trump earlier Friday used the Defense Production Act to order GM to begin producing ventilators hours after the company had announced it would do so.
