The good news is that today in the very first contract made under the
Defense Production Act GM was ordered to make 30,000 ventilators for $489.4
million. The bad news is they won't be ready until late August. Pity this
was done on April 8 not January 8. Meanwhile as of 19:17 GMT 14,369
Americans have died of COVID-19 and at its rate of increase in a few hours
it will overtake Spain and become #2 in the total death count category. It
won't take long for the USA to overtake Italy and become #1 because Italy's
death count is now only doubling every 2 weeks, but the USA's death count
is still doubling every 4 days.
