Detroit, Mich. – In a stunning transformation to provide support in the fight against the current pandemic, Ford is making as many as 50,000 simple ventilators for patients within 100 days and plans to continue producing 30,000 per month after that.

The factory will be staffed by 500 United Auto Workers union members who have volunteered to work on the project, Ford said.
