Toy giant Lego said it will dedicate molding machines specifically to help make personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical personnel who are in the frontline of fighting the coronavirus.
Lego announced over their tweeter account.
“We know that every little helps right now, so we’re thankful to our colleagues who are supporting the healthcare heroes working to keep us safe,” Lego posted in their tweeter account together with a 1-minute video.
“The company gathered its resources to make 13,500 face visors a day,” the toy giant said in the video.
Lego added that they so far converted 6 molding machines to produce visors in its factory in Billund, Denmark.
The company also said they can upgrade to make 58,000 medical visors a day within two weeks if needed.
All the visors have been “approved” by hospital personnel.
More than 100 Lego employees are working around the clock on this project.
Lego is also planning to expand the production of visors to its other factories as well, starting with Hungary.
Health workers are constantly exposed to the threat of Coronavirus as over 100 doctors and nurses have died combating the virus across the world as of early April.
