The Nigerian government on Wednesday begged for the assistance of Tesla CEO and Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk in the fight against coronavirus, as the number of confirmed cases hit 174.

The tech guru took to his Twitter page on Thursday, disclosing that his company is ready to provide free FDA-approved ventilators to countries in need of immediate ventilators.

Musk, however, said the ventilators would be shipped to countries within its delivery region and those in urgent need but only on one condition.

Musk said that the ventilators must be needed immediately and not for storing in warehouses for future purposes.

His tweet read: “We have extra FDA-approved ventilators. Will ship to hospitals worldwide within Tesla delivery regions. Device and shipping costs free.

” Only requirement is that the vents are needed immediately for patients and not stored in a warehouse..”

The official handle of the Nigerian ministry of finance quickly responded, pleading for 100-500 ventilators to fight coronavirus.

The post read: “Dear Elon Musk, Tesla, the federal government of Nigeria needs the support of 100-500 ventilators to assist with COVID-19 cases in Nigeria.”
