The story of Elon Musk contributing to the ventilator for California hospital appears to be a new development: Tesla’s CEO has just officially addressed the incident.
Talking about what happened: A while ago, Elon Musk announced that he would donate ventilators to necessary places, but when gifts were handed over, people discovered that these were non-invasive ventilators . Not suitable for treating people with Covid-19.
The incident subsided when there were reports that many places could be modified to better suit the situation, and Tesla was also designing and building its own invasive ventilator to support hospitals that lack equipment. .
Two days ago, according to Sacramento Bee (local newspaper California) and CNN reported, no hospital in California has received ventilators. The state’s Emergency Services Department confirmed to CNN on Wednesday, confirming it still kept in touch with local hospitals and had never received anything from Tesla or Elon Musk.
Musk has just officially counterattacked, confirming this is fabricated information.
“I’m surprised to see that CNN is still active.”
CNN editor Jackie Wattles answered Musk as follows:
“I just want to say that the CNN correspondent (myself included) has been trying to contact Tesla several times over the past several weeks to ask about the ventilator, and there was no response. This article only instructed the governor. Newsom. “
It seems that CNN only reports heard from local government offices. Elon Musk has just “tagged” Gavin Newsom governor on Twitter to ask about unnecessary confusion. However, local authorities have not issued any further statements.
“@GavinNewsom, please correct this misunderstanding.”
Elon Musk corrects the new information himself with the evidence he has. The first is an email exchange between him and Tesla’s project manager, Omead Afshar, about ventilators in Los Angeles, California. In the reply, the director of Afshar confirmed that the ventilator had completed the test and would soon go into operation.
“Hey Phillip, do you know when the hospital will use a ventilator?” Musk asked, and received a reply, “They all worked well for today’s test. We will put the device to work tomorrow. Thank you.” Thank you! “.
The Tesla CEO continued to post a series of Twitter thank-you messages from Tesla hospitals in California, some with breathing machine photos that hospitals have received.

CEO of Mammoth Hospital, California sent an email to thank Tesla and Elon Musk.
In his latest Twitter post, Elon Musk published a list of all the hospitals that received his ventilators, including the number of each hospital.
Elon Musk has published evidence that he has fulfilled his promise, and the local government has not made any other statement. The “Musk ventilator” incident will not stop here, because Tesla is also producing ventilators by itself. This complex device will also cause headaches for Tesla engineers in the near future.
