General Motors and medical equipment maker Ventec Life Systems have made deliveries of 30,000 ventilators to the U.S. government during the coronavirus crisis, the automaker said on Tuesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump had urged the American automakers as part of a broader push to secure over 130,000 ventilators by the end of 2020.

The deliveries were under a $489 million contract from the U.S. Health and Human Services Department.

The automaker said it has handed over operational control of its Kokomo, Indiana facility to Ventec for making ventilators.
