Coronavirus Covid-19

Connectors

Please use the hub for sharing updates on how engineers and technology are taking a stand against the Coronavirus. At this moment there is a fight that the world can unite behind. Who would have thought that owning a 3D printer could be a key component to helping those in the front line of this pandemic? 

This is an open platform for contributions, so if you have information that can help, or stories to share where engineering and technology are being used against this virus, no matter how small, then please contribute. 

Coronavirus has no boundaries and no preference to those who it infects, a virus only has one mission and that is to exist. Together it can be beaten, but it won't be easy, information is power, so stay safe and share.
