LONDON, March 17 (Reuters) - Some British companies are working to make thousands of ventilators in just a few weeks to help more people survive the coronavirus, said Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“They (businesses) are working incredibly hard in the next few weeks, and we really only have a few weeks, to build literally thousands of ventilators that this country will need,” he said at a news conference on Tuesday.
