Virgin Orbit helps in the fight against COVID-19

Virgin recently formed a group called the Bridge Ventilator Consortium that worked closely with medical-device experts and physicians from the University of Texas in Austin and the University of California Irvine (UCI) to come up with a quick solution to the ventilator shortage being felt around the world. … According to Dr. Brian J.F. Wong, an assistant chairman of otolaryngology at UCI, “Getting ventilators out there is very important to save lives. The demand outstrips supply, so it is important the government, industry, academia, non-profits and the community work together to identify solutions, and design and construct them as fast as possible.”
