Tesla CEO Elon Musk Donates Truck Load of PPEs (including masks) to UCLA Health

Tesla CEO Elon Musk Donates Truck Load of PPEs (including masks) to UCLA Health

Due to the growing number of cases of COVID-19 medical facilities around the world feel a lack of protective equipment for their workers. Countries were not ready for such a situation, so they are currently not able to cover these needs and the US was no exception.

In this difficult time, businessmen came to the aid of hospitals. So yesterday, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk promised to hand over to the hospitals some items of protection that he had in his factories.

Musk, in an interview with CleanTechnica, said that 250,000 masks with N95 protection level, which belong to his companies, will be transferred to hospitals.

“We have 250k N95 masks. Aiming to start distributing those to hospitals tomorrow night."

N95 masks have both industrial and medical applications, so it can be assumed that Tesla has a large supply of them in order to cover their needs. Due to the fact that at the moment all Tesla factories in the United States have temporarily suspended their activities, due to quarantine, it can be assumed that they do not need so many masks in the near future, so the company has the opportunity to give them to those who they are really needed now.

While critics and opponents wrote baseless tweets aimed at harming the reputation of Tesla and Musk, a successful businessman, inventor and a person with a kind heart, kept his promises.

So UCLA Health Hospital received a truckload of various protective items, including masks and gowns from Tesla. This was reported by Peyton Reed, whose wife works in this hospital. He expressed his deep gratitude to Musk from himself, as well as from his wife, her work colleagues and patients.

UCLA Health Hospital also thanked Elon and Tesla for their generous and timely act.

In this difficult time, the community must rally in order to defeat the disease and its impact. Now every company or individual who wants to help is extremely important and valuable to us. The Tesmanian team expresses deep gratitude to everyone who helps.
