DoES Liverpool's COVID-19 Help
A location for our face visor (and other?) help during the COVID-19 pandemic
This repository has been spun out of this initial issue on the topic because (a) it looks like we'll be making some visors and (b) trying to manage that in one issue thread is getting unwieldy.
Lots of makers are looking to help across the world, and that's where we're getting a lot of our information, designs, and inspiration. This repo is (probably) going to focus on what we can and are doing at DoES Liverpool, generally for Liverpool and nearby.
That said, we know lots of other makers across the country, so can connect people up if you need it. And here are some links to other initiatives to check out:
CoVid19 Volunteers Slack - UK focussed is gaining a lot of traction. You can join with the invitation here. Then browse for the #znorthwestuk channel
If you don't use Slack there is a Riot channel to this discussion at #covid19-nwuk:1312.media
Or you can just use a web browser from here https://riot.im/app/#/room/#covid19-nwuk:1312.media
Helpful Engineering collaboration slack - more international. You can join here
TODO - Add any links to other people running at this
NHS Advice on PPE
- Mostly we're looking at making face shields/visors to help with the PPE shortage for health professionals
- There are some other COVID-19-related projects over on the regular "somebody should" issue tracker
This page (and others in the repository) are for hold information about the work we've done. To manage the work itself, we'll spin tasks out as individual issues over here. There's also a general "I can help" issue where you can show up to volunteer :-)
If you want to get emails when there are new issues or comments, click the "Watch" button up at the top of the page.
If all this talk of issues, etc. is confusing, our general "how to help at DoES Liverpool" page might help, or feel free to ask us on social media or drop us an email.
Other info, links, etc.
Any other useful things for people to go and check out...
Link to some Euskadi Makers Stats Here's the number of visors they'd delivered by 27/03/2020 for the 3 areas they cover. Could be of interest to see how that increasees:
- ARABA 992
- BIZKAIA 5330
- GIPUZKOA 3337
(Currently they have a total of 477 printers)
Inventables' Crisis (C) Rating System for Personal Protective Gear is a nice way of framing the levels of "authorised" for what's being produced
Bits here about schools donating equipment
