“The total of nine ventilator contracts — made under the Korean War–era Defense Production Act — will provide 6,190 ventilators to the Strategic National Stockpile by May 8 and 29,510 by June 1, according to HHS. Tens of thousands of more ventilators will arrive later in the year.”
“’President Trump and HHS’s use of the DPA is getting private manufacturers what they need to ramp up ventilator production rapidly. We are grateful to the patriotic Americans at companies working around the clock and retooling factories to increase ventilator production,’ HHS Secretary Alex Azar said in a news release.”
