Please read this consent form carefully and take your time making your decision. There is a growing concern about the covid19 pandemic in all spheres of life. Countries are in lockdown, international and domestic travels have been halted and citizens are being advised to practice social distancing. This is a short survey to access Ghana's preparedness to tackle the corona virus pandemic. The survey is conducted by Sena Institute of Technology, Ghana and the Hartwick College, New York. Please share this survey with family and friends on your social network and encourage them to respond to the survey for better planning and policy development as we monitor the progress of the disease.
The current coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is putting a significant strain on healthcare systems globally. Personal protection equipment such as surgical masks and respirators are the most sought after resource for protecting healthcare professionals who are at the forefront of the fight against this deadly disease. The limited access to N95 masks is exposing healthcare professionals to the disease worsening the situation. We have also observed that countries that do not put in place adequate resources experience the most fatality as seen in Italy and Spain.
In partnership with Mr. Jordan Elevons, a 3D Design Engineer, he has developed and tested a low-cost 3D-printed face mask that is reusable, and can be manufactured locally. We will supply at least 50,000 respirator masks to hospitals in Ghana to combat the Covid-19 disease. For more information check Jordan Elevons' blog.
