The companies, including some of the biggest names in Formula 1 racing and aerospace such as McLaren and Airbus, are racing to boost production after the government said it did not have enough ventilators in its armoury. The government is also acquiring the life-saving devices from private hospitals and global producers.

The government did not comment on the Dyson e-mail.

British tech company Dyson has agreed to help the UK Government in its fight against the coronavirus by creating 10,000 new ventilator models.

The company responded saying it was merely answering questions from journalists about the ventilators, which it expects to be in hospitals within weeks, subject to regulatory approval. The number of coronavirus deaths in Britain rose by 41 to 465 on Wednesday.

Ahead of an expected surge of cases that could overwhelm Britain's publicly funded health service, Prime Minister Boris Johnson made an urgent appeal to manufacturers 10 days ago to build ventilators to help keep patients alive.

British tech giant Dyson is developing 10,000 ventilators for the U.K.'s National Health Service to treat patients hospitalized with coronavirus, and also plans to distribute an additional 5,000 ventilators to combat the virus internationally.

The company, which revolutionized the vacuum cleaner market with its bagless cyclonic device in the 1990s, said it would work with regulators and government to ensure that the product and the manufacturing process was approved.
