The worldwide lack of ventilators is an issue and their weighty cost of $30,000 (£24,000) to $50,000 (£40,700) on the worldwide market implies numerous less fortunate nations can’t bear the cost of them.

In any case, the young people say they are building the truly necessary gadget for under $600 each.
