A loose association of UK* companies with engineering expertise and capacity have banded together to work on creating ventilators to increase the capacity for British people who have been infected with the coronavirus.
The project is called VentilatorChallengeUK and is seeing companies bring together academics, aerospace technicians and physicians to work together and co-ordinate there efforts in response to the global emergency.
The race truly is on for these pieces of equipment to made as fast as possible, and the companies making them face logistical, technical and regulatory hurdles in there way.
Their ingenuity will be tested to the absolute limit and lives are at stake as the global demand for the equipment has skyrocketed as the situation has worsened.
There are similar efforts going on in America with companies like General Motors pitching in to make as many ventilators as possible.
*Not all of these companies are specifically UK only companies, but all have strong manufacturing, business and customer bases in the UK.
