A team of local entrepreneurs, engineers and medical professionals have begun designing and printing masks and hope to begin printing ventilators for use by pationets.
Check the following posts to see their progress
Update:myself @yeknology & @ruff_gong are still working on the solution to build working ventilators locally using 3D printing. in the meantime tho we just printed this visor for healthcare workers.simple solution while we tackle the ventilator problem.still need support.RT&Tag https://t.co/ue6ub6GgVU— thedot (@mannishwaata) March 24, 2020

Ventilator Proof of Concept
1/This vid is V1 of our POC emergency ventilator. Built by a local team of bright engineers and drs. We are following FDA guidelines to refine and add the necessary sensors, valves and metres. This is a similar concept to that put fwd by MIT. pic.twitter.com/95o5TmtmS3— thedot (@mannishwaata) March 27, 2020
