On March 31, Elon Musk wrote on his Twitter page that Tesla was willing to send artificial lung ventilation machines to hospitals worldwide.

"We have extra FDA-approved ventilators. Will ship to hospitals worldwide within Tesla delivery regions. Device & shipping cost are free. Only requirement is that the vents are needed immediately for patients, not stored in a warehouse. Please me or Tesla know,” the American businessman stated.

Former Healthcare Minister of Ukraine Ulana Suprun responded to Musk’s tweet, asking for help.

My name is Ulana Suprun and I am the former minister of health of Ukraine. Ukraine is in dire need of ventilators. We have only 3500 in the ICUs and we have a population of 37 million. Please help us!” the message reads.

As we reported earlier, a cargo plane from China delivered another batch of medical supplies to Ukraine on March 31. 

It was loaded with 100,000 PCR tests for coronavirus, 40,000 multiple-use glasses, medical masks and the facilities for lung ventilators.
