Lamborghini has announced that it's converting its production plant in Sant'Agata Bolognese to focus on the production of surgical masks and protective medical shields amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.

The products will supply the Sant'Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna with the necessary tools to keep its workers protected on the front lines. The Upholstery Department that usually produces interiors and customizations will create 1,000 masks per day. Following suit, the Research and Development Department is using 3D printers to make 200 protective medical shields in polycarbonate daily. All the medical equipment will be validated by The Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences before delivery.

Below is the statement from Stefano Domenicali, the Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini:

"During an emergency such as this one, we feel the need to make a concrete contribution. We have therefore decided to support the Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, an institution with which we have had a collaborative relationship for years, through both professional consultancy in promoting programs to protect our workers’ health, and in research projects. We will win this battle together by working in union, supporting those who are at the forefront of fighting this pandemic every day.”

Lamborghini's collaboration with Supreme is dropping tomorrow but this news of a major brand helping out its local community and saving lives is what the world needs right now.
