You’re here posted a video on their YouTube channel showing Tesla engineers working on fans mainly from Tesla Model 3 rooms. It is quite amazing how many existing Tesla parts can be reused to assemble a fan.

Not so long ago, Elon Musk was skeptical about the possible need for more fans. however, this has changed, and Musk obviously realizes that the medical community didn’t overreact in February when they warned us that it was going to get very bad.

Tesla now has a team of engineers working on designing respirators from predominantly existing Tesla parts. In doing so, they do not take the rare parts necessary to assemble the respirators of other companies which are trying to build as much as possible and as quickly as possible. It’s a great plan, but only if it works.

Hospitals are severely undernourished with enough ventilators to cope with the crushing of COVID-19 patients who need it. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently said the state will soon need 30,000 additional respirators for the patient’s peak curve that the condition should see.

New York got it good news recently, although. Thanks to a donation from billionaires Jack Ma and Joseph Tsai, the Chinese government sent 1,000 fans to the state and Oregan State also sent 140 respirators.

Yet it is not enough for what the governor expects them to need.

We don’t know exactly how far Tesla can get approval and build the devices. Still, it’s great to see such an incredible spirit of work, and Tesla unleashing the power of their engineers to meet an urgent need that will save lives.

Tesla has already obtained over 1,200 fans from China and donated them to California hospitals about two weeks ago. As we reported when this happened, we are not sure if Tesla, SpaceX or Elon itself paid for the fans.

Ford recently promised to do 50,000 fans in 100 days, in partnership with GE Healthcare and using a ventilator design already approved by the FDA.

General Motors, on the other hand, in partnership with Ventec Life Systems, to increase production of their respiratory products in Michigan.

It will be interesting to see if You’re here can design, get approvals (which will be streamlined during the crisis) and build fans faster than GM and Ford, as these two companies will build devices already in service.

Tesla designs a fan from scratch, and they build it from the auto parts bin. Again, it is really difficult to bet against Elon.

Hopefully the three companies will succeed in their quest and soon deliver these essential medical devices to save lives, because every day counts.
