Technology helping fight the coronavirus COVID-19 is just an amazing story. Already believed to be helping hundreds of peoples lives using a simple snorkel and 3D printer.

Isinnova a small start-up Italian company has shared their easy to make 3D  file for the valve for anyone to use for free to help people during this pandemic. They have named it the Charlotte Valve.

By simply connecting the 3D-printed C-PAP (continuous positive airway pressure) with an easy breath snorkelling mask made by decathlon with an oxygen supply it will work just like a ventilator explains Alessandro Romaioli.

This virus is making people so inventive and trying to help people in need. 

Well done Isinnova so inspiring. #BeatingCoronavirusWithTec
