Almost all countries across the globe have focused their efforts on curbing the spread of Covid-19 or the Coronavirus. Even before it was declared a pandemic, the number of Covid-19 cases increased at an exponential rate, so much so that medical institutions could not keep up with the increased count. While the virus’ spread is slowing down in some regions, there is a dire shortage of resources.
COVID-19 Manufacturing Fund
To help with the ongoing shortage of crucial components, the global online manufacturing platform 3D Hubs has announced the COVID-19 Manufacturing Fund. Multiple initiatives for manufacturing components like masks and ventilator parts sprung up when the news of shortage spread. However, most of these initiatives lack funds and manufacturing capacity needed to act quickly.
