Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $325,000 to Sea-Long Global Respiratory Systems to support the increased production of non-invasive ventilation helmets for COVID-19 patients. The helmets are intended to aid patients under respiratory distress and reduce the demand for ventilators in regions experiencing severe outbreaks, in the U.S. and internationally.

This falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
