IntechOpen supports Corona (COVID-19) healthcare workers

31st March 2020

To all of the non-medical professionals in our publishing community in the United States, we'd like to bring the following important call to your attention:

GetUsPPE.org is a US grassroots organization led by emergency medicine physicians, working to give all PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) proceeds to the frontline healthcare workers most in need.

Critical PPE items are stockpiled in non-medical labs, engineering and construction job sites, and cleanrooms and machine shops across the country - most of which are closed due to the pandemic. The website GetUsPPE.org is coordinating the transfer of these unused items directly to the healthcare facilities in need, in the same vicinity.

GetUsPPE.org needs:

  • Surgical masks
  • Goggles
  • Face shields
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Isolation gowns
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Scrubs
  • Disposable shoe covers
  • Nasopharyngeal swabs
  • Respirators

Thank you for your attention!

Please note that IntechOpen has no affiliation with the GetUsPPE website or organization but our collective reach can make a difference!

On behalf of the IntechOpen Team, 

Dr. Anke Beck
