Apple has plans to manufacture and ship more than one million face shields each week to slow the spread of the coronavirus. 

The smartphone giant is pulling together its resources to develop the face shields specifically for medical workers, Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a tweet on Sunday. The company already sourced over 20 million masks through its global supply chain and delivered the first shipment to a hospital last week. 

The masks pack flat and ship 100 to a box. They can be assembled in less than two minutes and are fully adjustable, Cook said.
