March 31 (Reuters) - Tesla Inc Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Tuesday the company has extra FDA-approved ventilators to be shipped free of cost to hospitals within regions where the electric carmaker delivers.
"Device & shipping cost are free. Only requirement is that the vents are needed immediately for patients, not stored in a warehouse. Please me or @Tesla know," Musk said in a tweet here.
Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on how many ventilators it has to offer, or how the company will prioritize requests. (Reporting by Munsif Vengattil in Bengaluru; Editing by Aditya Soni)
