Britain's biggest car maker Jaguar Land Rover said it is using its prototype building operations to make a target of 5,000 visors a week for health service workers, as manufacturers repurpose facilities to fight against coronavirus.

The government is trying to boost the amount of personal protective equipment for doctors and nurses and ventilators for patients.
