Jamie Beck commented on Preventing Mosquito the local and effective way

Jamie Beck commented on Desiccant embedded PPE suit to keep PPE dry and bearable

A few other questions to consider:

1) What kind of information would need to be included in the packs that will help with training on how to use and safe protocol, especially in donning and doffing?

2) Distribution - how will these be distributed to remote communities that need them?

3) Manufacturing - who can manufacture these packs in a wearable version?
