The world's biggest iPhone maker Foxconn is joining companies like Ford, GM, and Tesla in switching some of its manufacturing lines to make ventilators.
Omar Ishrak, CEO of medical tech company Medtronic, told CNBC on Monday that it has struck up a deal with Foxconn after the iPhone-maker adopted an open-source design Medtronic released due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"That has had tremendous response, we've had over 70,000 downloads and there have been some major players who've been engaged, amongst them is Foxconn," said Ishrak.
