As the contagion of COVID-19 continued to evolve throughout the world, and each time closer to us, something had to be done.
With the number of deaths in Italy skyrocketing and medical assistance suffering from the lack of ventilators in health services, one tweet was enough to spark a movement of global volunteers.
In a couple of hours, we went from a few to a few thousand volunteers. This is how #ProjectOpenAir was born, with the intent of developing easily replicable open source ventilators, to so much more.
In just a few days, we went from a single project to several projects tackling the various fronts of this fight against the virus.
As we grow both in number and in projects, we are saving lives, and we are not alone.
We are all in this fight together.
