After Tesla CEO Elon Musk made good on his promise to deliver ventilators to California to aid with the coronavirus pandemic, New York is now asking the tech titan to pitch in.

New York Assemblyman Sean Ryan wrote a letter to Musk on Tuesday, pleading with him to build ventilators in the company’s Buffalo, N.Y., factory, according to Buffalo News, which first reported the story.

The article goes on to state the following:

“New York State is the most impacted state in the nation,” Ryan wrote, according to the news outlet. “It makes sense that increased ventilator production would happen here to ensure we can meet the growing demand of our health care system.”

From Buffalo News:

Musk said in a tweet on Saturday that he had a good talk with medical device maker Medtronic about ventilators – a breathing apparatus that could be in acutely short supply as the coronavirus outbreak spreads and affects more patients.

“We are grateful for the discussion with Elon Musk and Tesla as we work across industries to solve problems and get patients and hospitals the tools they need to continue saving lives,” Medtronic said. “We’re all in this together.”

The factory in question is temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is used to make solar panels and is subsidized by the state of New York, Fox News reports.
