No one has the right answer or the ability to foresee this precisely. The answer depends upon the current development of the COVID-19 pandemic and how the virus affects the global community during the coming months. According to World Economic Forum, 77.000 new ventilators where brought to the global market last year. In April, New York City alone forecast an additional need of 30.000 ventilators. In total demand is expected to rise by 500-1000 pct. This extra demand is unlikely to be met by manufacturers alone. They are currently boosting their production with 50-100 pct. Therefore, there could be a need for the open source AAU Pandemic Ventilator or similar projects.
