Thread: Dyson designs new ventilator in 10 days

  1. #31
    Not all corporate "greed". Some of the states have leaders who can't find their ventilators, NOT their personal ones .....
    just the ones the little people might need. Didn't mean to frighten you !

    What irks me about the company in the article is that they were able to get out of a contract. Any one of use would be hard pressed to accomplish that in our own worlds. But as always...Wall Street and short term financials win over morality.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    Just use a compressed air hose. What could possibly go wrong? You go first.

    There's an article online at CNN Business about Mercedes F1 working to repurpose CPAP machines to assist with non-critical Covid-19 patients who need mild assistance with breathing.

    I am sorry Jim, but this sentence absolutely not correct. I am telling this as a professional, who is taking care of COVID 19 patients and other patients too.
