The University of Cambridge has strong links and academic collaborations with China, and particularly Nanjing, such as Engineering Professor Daping Chu. In collaboration with Professors Sadaf Farooqi and Toni Vidal Puig (Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science), our engineers, biomedical scientists and clinicians are working with suppliers and manufacturers in the UK and China to ensure we access high-quality PPE. The money raised by the fund will go towards purchasing:
- Goggles (reusable or single)
- FFP2 and FFP3 masks (reusable or single-use) with additional filters for reusable
- Water repellent single-use IIR standard surgical masks
- Surgical gowns
£150 buys enough FFP3 respirator masks to care for one patient in Intensive Care for one day and £1,000 buys 100 pairs of scrubs. We are hoping that if individually we can raise/donate a small amount that collectively we can reach a sum that can make a difference to the fund.
