As if those weren’t enough, Ferrari has also donated an ambulance to Modena’s local health care unit. At the time of writing, it is “fully active and in daily use by the emergency department for COVID-19 patients.”
The Emilia-Romagna region has more than 18,700 positive cases of coronavirus according to the latest update from the Italian authorities. Of those, a little over 8,000 people are confined at home with mild symptoms. Regarding the city of Modena, positive cases are steadily approaching 2,900 patients.
Towards the end of March 2020, Ferrari N.V. released a statement according to which production in Modena and Maranello will resume on April 14th if there are no disruptions to the supply chain. Given the extent of the pandemic in this part of Emilia-Romagna, the production halt will be likely extended.
Ferrari halted production on March 14th, 2020, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles followed suit on March 16th. Pretty much the entire automotive industry – from all across the world – is in limbo at the time of writing this story. Even the Lamborghini Museum is offline right now, expected to resume activities on May 4th.
