COVID Response Team

The COVID Response Team is a not-for-profit group of engineers, medical doctors, researchers and others dedicated to saving lives during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Their main goal is to provide emergency ventilators to meet the huge demand for supportive breathing equipment as a result of the spread of the disease.
