Yesterday, The Detroit News reported that EnVisionTECH in Dearborn, Michigan was producing Nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs that were FDA approved to help with COVID-19 testing. Ali Siblani, the owner of the 3D printing company said he has been scaling to produce over a million swabs a day and currently shipping out 200,000 a day to various universities and hospitals.
Siblani says he contacted the governor’s office to equip the state with more swabs. He has yet to hear back.
“Yet again, Michigan is suffering due to the consequences of Governor Whitmer’s poor management in a time of crisis.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “While Whitmer pushes the narrative that Michigan isn’t getting enough testing supplies from the federal government, she and her administration are willing to pass over a Michigan based solution. It’s shameful and a horrible disservice to the people of our state.”
