Dyson Shifts Focus From Vacuums to Ventilators For Pandemic

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 one in just ten days.

Now he’s making 15,000 of them to fight COVID-19.

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

According to Dyson, the company designed and built an entirely new ventilator called the “CoVent” after getting a call ten days ago from U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Mister Dyson says the CoVent is designed for COVI-19 patients and can be manufactured quickly, which is key as the demand rises fast.

A company spokesperson says the ventilators should be ready by early April.

Mister Dyson says he will donate 5,000 ventilators for the international fight against the pandemic.
