SpaceX Is Making And Donating Hand Sanitizers And Masks To Hospitals

SpaceX has started to produce hand sanitizers and protective masks to donate to hospitals and places that are in need to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to an internal memo, SpaceX has started to produce hand sanitizers and protective masks to donate to hospitals and places that are in need to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an email sent to its employees, SpaceX announced that hand sanitizers would be made by the materials engineering, facilities, and health and safety teams. The product would be made following the CDC guidelines and would be effective at killing the virus.

Meanwhile, the same team building crew equipment and space suits will be in charge of manufacturing face shields. So far, over the weekend, 75 masks were made and donated to Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The team also sent to medical staff there 100 Tyvek coverall suits. When being asked about the donations, both SpaceX and the medical center didn’t immediately respond.

The memo also writes about the company’s efforts in supporting its employees. For instance, all food outlets of the company will reduce the food prices in half. Moreover, hourly employees are allowed to scan their badges instead of using a fingerprint scanner.

This is such a positive change after SpaceX CEO Elon Musk underestimated the COVID-19 outbreak. He said to his employees that they were more likely to die from a car accident than COVID-19.

Now, Elon Musk and his two companies Tesla and SpaceX are trying to help fight the disease. Tesla recently made a purchase of 1,000 ventilators from China and donated them to California. The company also sent 50,000 N95 masks to the University of Washington Medical Center.

Tesla is reportedly partnering with medical equipment company Medtronic to make its own ventilator. Musk announced that the Gigafactory in New York would remain open to manufacture ventilators.
