Dyson has announced it will develop a new type of medical ventilator for the NHS, to help with coronavirus.

Dyson said the company designed and built a ventilator called the "CoVent" after receiving an order from UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson ten days ago. His device is called the CoVent and is specifically meant to support coronavirus patients.

Dyson is setting up a production line to produce ventilators for the NHS at its Hullavington site after the United Kingdom government ordered 10,000 of the lifesaving product.

Amid fears the health service does not have enough to handle the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak, the entrepreneur's company, Dyson, has designed a new ventilator.

Numed, a well established company in business since 1975 provides a wide range of service options including time & material service, PM only contracts, full service contracts, labor only contracts & system relocation.

Britain ordered 10,000 medical ventilators designed at breakneck speed by vacuum cleaner maker Dyson, said billionaire founder James Dyson, as the country tries to increase the number of devices available to treat coronavirus patients.

But he emphasized that any design would need regulatory approval.

Businesses will be given five months of interest and penalty relief to file and make payments to most provincial taxes. More than $3 billion in funding is directed toward health care.

Headed by British inventor Sir James Dyson, the firm said it responded to the government's request for assistance.

"This new device can be manufactured quickly, efficiently and at volume", Dyson said to employees.

The new CoVent will be battery powered and will not require a fixed air supply and can be used in field hospitals.The new ventilator draws on Dyson's current technology from the company's air purifier and powered by a digital motor.

"Creating new designs which can complement existing models might help meet demand", commented Dr Federico Formenti, who is part of the OxVent team.

One industry source working on a rival project told The Telegraph: "The more of these machines we can get into hospitals and the more companies working on it, then great, but this seems like using a national emergency as a point-scoring opportunity". The company will also donate 5000 units to worldwide efforts.

The government now has a supply of 8,000 ventilators.
