Do You Want to Provide Coronavirus Disaster Relief Help to COVID-19 Victims?

With the number of COVID-19 victims increasing every day, doctors and experts are scrambling to their best abilities to fight against the Coronavirus.
Current Stance on Fighting the Coronavirus
At the moment, several medical companies are in the midst of developing a vaccine or treatment for COVID-19 to be introduced to patients. US Biotech firm Moderna Therapeutics was the first company to send out an experimental vaccine to the US government. It was considered a remarkable feat as it was sent out 6 weeks after the Coronavirus was introduced in China.
The vaccine will likely not be available for public use until 12 to 18 months later, even if approved. The initial trials of the vaccine may begin in April, but the procedure of finalizing the product may longer.
With the long wait for a vaccine, the number of patients will continue to increase.
This can lead to a number of things, with the first being:
Medical Supply Shortage
As of 27th February, 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reported shortages in a human drug due to the Coronavirus. Personal protective equipment such as surgical gowns, gloves, masks, respirator protective devices and other medical equipment designed to protect the wearer from infection have surged in demand. This is preventing medical staff from receiving proper equipment when treating patients.
While the US is not facing any shortages for medical supply yet, globally, the situation is far more dire.
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated in an interview with CNN that, “the world is facing severe disruption in the market for personal protective equipment.” The demand for these equipment increased by a hundredfold and prices went up by 20.
Some doctors are already seeing an immediate impact due to the shortage of medical supplies. Even the New York State Department of Health was notified of a shortage of N95 masks and if this continues to go on, hospitals facing this constraint will be in danger of using up protective equipment that will hinder the treatment of patients.
