UJ engineers step forward with prototype for low-cost ventilators

Published

on

The outbreak of the Covid-19 virus has pushed the government to work around the clock to ensure that the country is equipped and has access to essential resources during this pandemic.

Scientists have been working on a vaccine to fight the Covid-19 virus and now a team of engineers and health care specialists from the University of Johannesburg led by engineers Dr Deon Sabatta and Dr Samson Masebinu have created a prototype for a low-cost ventilator in their fight against the deadly Covid-19.
