Taiwanese doctor invents device to protect doctors against coronavirus

A Taiwanese doctor on Saturday (March 21) released the design for a device that better protects doctors as they intubate patients, as physicians battling the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) in the are desperately short of protective medical equipment.

On his Facebook page on Saturday, Lai Hsien-yung (賴賢勇), an anesthesiologist at Mennonite Christian Hospital in eastern Taiwan’s Hualien, wrote that in January, he began brainstorming about simple solutions to the problem of providing protection for physicians running out of protective gear in China. However, what he did not expect was that two months later he would be receiving inquiries from American doctors, who are facing critical shortages in equipment.
