Apple pledges 1M face shields a week for providers

Apple CEO Tim Cook said the technology company would produce 1 million face shields a week, according to CNBC.

"We've launched a company-wide effort, bringing together product designers, engineering, operations and packaging teams, and our suppliers to design, produce and ship face shields for health workers," Mr. Cook said in an April 5 video.

Apple shipped the first delivery of shields to Kaiser Permanente facilities in Santa Clara Valley, Calif. The face shields can be packed 100 to a box, with assembly taking two minutes.
