Show HN: Engineering group to help medical staff against Covid-19

We've created an engineering group to help in the event of a severe COVID-19 crisis.

Right now we have engineers, PhDs, and the owner of a manufacturing company, with a supply chain and offices in New York, Florida, and Taiwan.

The idea behind the group is that a COVID-19 outbreak might be something our medical system hasn't seen before. There may be shortages or special needs of medical equipment and other resources. We think we can help by building certain devices.

We probably can't build ICUs, but we could provide real help to a burdened medical front-line in a crisis. We're doing this in a deliberate and pragmatic way, informed by medical opinion.

Right now, we're looking for more help—anyone with project management, engineering as well as non-technical experience.

We're especially looking for doctors, particularly those with emergency room, triage experience, or who have (are) dealing with the current outbreak.

If you're interested, please get in touch. My email is in my profile.

Please post it in reddit/r/covid19. There might be more interested parties there.

Thank you for suggesting this, I posted this in the main comment thread.
