Together against covid-19!
To all innovators, inventors, and everyone ready to join forces in this exceptional moment!
What can we do?
There is currently no clearly validated cure against covid-19. The only thing that helps to relieve patients is to provide respiratory support and other medical aids. Plus we can work to slow the pace of new infections by raising the awareness about the disease and its ways of transmission and increasing the use of masks in the population.
As clearly formulated by the WHO in recent publications, we need to find the strength to look beyond our own borders if we want to defend our very basic humanity in this crisis. Especially the situation in African countries is alarming and need as urgent actions as everywhere else. Unfortunately, African countries do not have enough resources to care for all patients who will suffer from covid-19. According to the health authorities in Mali, for example, the country has only one respirator, and only 600,000 masks for a need of more than 5 million masks! It is our duty to find solutions at the local level. We need to work together now to develop local solutions which are affordable and suitable for use.
Community-driven solutions are needed now! And we can all contribute
How can we achieve that?
