Dyson making 15,000 ventilators to help fight COVID-19

Coronavirus

(WSYR-TV) — Dyson may be known for vacuum cleaners and hand dryers, but the coronavirus has forced the company to shift its focus to ventilators.

James Dyson designed a new ventilator in just 10 days. Now, he’s making 15,000 of them to fight COVID-19.

Dyson sent a letter to employees confirming the British government’s order for 10,000 units.

The ventilators should be ready by early April.
