With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, there have been many efforts that come together to tackle the threats cohesively, including the Mobile Negative Pressure Isolation Units by Thanet Natisri. Natisri is a man from Heartland living in Marion, Ill and is also a restaurant owner.
When he is not running Thai-D Classic Thai Cuisine, he is working remotely with a team of doctors and engineers in Thailand. They all have the goal of protecting health care workers from the dangers of treating COVID-19 patients. Natisri states that “We actually have a lot of doctors infected with the virus from the patients because they don’t have the right equipment, especially masks and isolation chambers.” Currently, the team has secured enough money to produce 100 isolation units.
