SpaceX is manufacturing its own hand sanitizer and face shields to help combat an ongoing coronavirus pandemic according to a new report.

An internal memo reviewed by CNBC suggests the company is making supplies and donating them to hospitals and businesses.

CNBC reports that the memo, which was circulated to employees, states that SpaceX delivered 75 face shields over the weekend to Cedars Sinai, a health facility near the company's headquarters in Hawthorne, California

Unlike respirator masks, shields cover the whole face from the top down in a suspended layer of plastic.
