Defence firm Babcock to build 10,000 ventilators
Defence firm Babcock has said it will be manufacturing 10,000 ventilators to help deal with the coronavirus crisis.
The plan comes nearly two weeks after Dyson said it had received a government order for 10,000 ventilators.
In a statement, Babcock said: "We responded quickly to the UK Prime Minister’s UK Ventilator Challenge and we are proud to have been awarded a contract by the Cabinet Office to manufacture 10,000 Zephyr Plus ventilators, subject to regulatory approvals; a product being developed in collaboration with an established major international supplier of critical care ventilators."
