Apple CEO Tim Cook says many teams at Apple are working on designing, producing and shipping face shields to medical workers battling coronavirus.

Apple announced Sunday it's launched a companywide effort to design, produce and ship face shields to medical workers battling the coronavirus outbreak.

The first shipment was delivered this week to a Kaiser facility in the Santa Clara Valley, Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a video posted to Twitter.

Our design, engineering, operations and packaging teams are also working with suppliers to design, produce and ship face shields for medical workers.

"Teams across Apple have been working hard on ways we can support our heroic front-line medical professionals," Cook said, explaining that the fully adjustable shields pack flat and can be assembled in two minutes.

"We plan to ship over 1 million by the end of this week, and over 1 million per week after that," he said.

Cook said the company is coordinating with health and government officials across the US to get the shields delivered where they're needed and hopes to expand distribution beyond the US quickly.

Cook also said that the number of face masks it's procured from its supply chain has risen to more than 20 million.
