Volvo and Jaguar Land Rover help medical sector

Two new brands offered their assistance in the fight against coronavirus. Volvo and Jaguar Land Rover work independently, but offer the same care to local doctors.

Both the Swedish brand and the British carmaker make 3D-printed visors that doctors and nurses can use as a face mask. The pandemic causes a huge shortage of supplies for people caring for the world. Several manufacturers, such as Seat and Ford, have already intervened, but now Volvo and Jaguar Land Rover are also taking advantage of the extra time they have had due to the shutdown of the main production.

Jaguar Land Rover claims to be able to “print” 1300 masks every week. This is done in collaboration with the British NHS, the state-funded healthcare system in England. Volvo says it can supply about 1,000 similar products every week. They are intended for emergency workers in the southern part of the Swedish region of Västra Götaland.
