1. Dyson enters the ventilator business in an effort to stem COVID-19 deaths.
In what’s perhaps not an too surprising move, high-end vacuum manufacturer Dyson has committed to manufacturing 15,000 ventilators to help save lives of those afflicted by COVID-19. Ventilators are complex medical devices that can be critical in treating patients who are severely afflicted by COVID-19, but are very complex to manufacture and are currently facing a dramatic shortage in hospitals worldwide. Given that, we’re pleased to see that Dyson was able to design and build a prototype in only 10 days and plans on beginning manufacturing immediately.
2. Tesla joins big tech in ramping up measures to combat COVID-19.
After donating 50,000 N95 masks to hospitals in Washington earlier this week, Elon Musk announced that he would re-open Tesla’s New York Gigafactory to begin manufacturing life-saving ventilators for COVID-19 patients. This comes on the heels of other large-scale efforts to combat the virus from big tech, including mask donations amounting to the millions from companies like Facebook and Apple.
3. Dating apps see a surge in usage in weeks following nationwide isolating
Contrary to one might reasonably expect, in the age of social distancing, swiping and messaging on dating apps is higher than ever. According to media reports, Tinder has seen a 10-15% bump in weekly message volume in mid-March, while Bumble has seen its message volume jump 21%. Areas particularly impacted by COVID-19 saw their volume jump even higher, suggesting some correlation between COVID-19 isolation measures and dating app usage.
