Other countries can't make ventilators? What a joke.

There is not going to be a market where the US dominates ventilators. The world got caught flat-footed, but I guarantee that China will out-build and sell many more ventilators than GM is going to do. GM was doing Trump a favor, now he's guaranteeing that they will be holding the shit end of the stick when the smoke clears.

4. Colombia close to having world's first open source and low-cost ventilator

From Colombia Reports, March 20, 2020

A team of engineers and scientists in Medellin were able to create a prototype of a low-cost open source ventilator that could save countless lives during the coronavirus pandemic.

The lack of mechanical ventilators that allow patients to get enough oxygen while fighting the respiratory illness is a major bottleneck in Colombia, which has less than 10,000 of these mechanical ventilators.

But Colombia isnít the only country that could soon run out of these life-saving, but complex and expensive machines; hospitals across the globes are short of the machines and production is limited.

A week after Stanford University scientist Daniel Kraft called for a global medical hackathon to create a low-cost and open source ventilator, engineer Mauricio Toro of the Antioquia University announced was putting the final touches on a prototype.
