An Emirati source recently revealed to a reporter for Al-Nasr newspaper that a research team at Khalifa University in the Emirates, in the previous period, developed a local respirator, in order to help those infected with the new Corona virus, which has turned into a global pandemic (pandemic).

In a related context, the source revealed to Al-Nasr newspaper correspondent that a research team from the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Care Engineering at Khalifa University in the UAE is preparing the necessary requirements, in order to establish a production unit, the aim of which is to produce respirators that work through compressed air technology.

In this regard, this comes to the fact that the efforts of the UAE at the present time come to combat the emerging corona virus, which causes the "Covid 19" disease.

The source recently added to Al-Nasr newspaper correspondent: "Until the research team also worked on developing a prototype for the artificial respiratory system in order to address all the conditions caused by the emerging corona virus" Covid-19 ".

According to the speech of Dr. Cesar Stephanini, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Care Engineering at Khalifa University in the United Arab Emirates and the supervisor of the project, it was revealed this morning that the health care system at present within the countries of the world suffers from the possibility of a shortage of devices Artificial respiration is one of the consequences of the spread of the emerging corona virus. "

Dr. Cesar Stefanini, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Care Engineering at Khalifa University in the United Arab Emirates and project supervisor, added: “We are currently striving for our project to be able to combat the emerging epidemic of the Corona virus, and our aim is to do To develop a prototype for the respirator in less than two weeks and design a comprehensive production unit. "

"Until the project-based research team has theoretical and engineering expertise needed for industrialization," added Dr. Cesar Stephanini, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Care Engineering at Khalifa University in the United Arab Emirates and project supervisor.

Dr. Cesar Stephanini, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Care Engineering at Khalifa University in the United Arab Emirates and project supervisor, added: “Producing artificial respirators at the required rate represents a huge challenge for all countries of the world, because they are very expensive at the present time, and the demand It has a great deal in light of the Corona virus in all countries of the world.

Statistics at the global level reveal that the number of those infected with the dreaded corona virus that originated in the Emirates exceeded two thousand, while the number of deaths reached 11 deaths.

The number of newly infected Coronavirus, which has turned into a global pandemic (pandemic) exceeded one million and 288 thousand infected, including more than 70 thousand deaths, while more than 272 thousand people recovered.

And the beginning of the emergence of the virus in China, at the end of December, which became the sixth in the world with more than 81 thousand infections.

The United States of America comes first on the global level in the incidence of coronavirus infection, after the number of those infected has become more than 336 thousand infected and about ten thousand deaths, followed by Spain in the second place with one hundred and thirty five thousand infected and more than thirteen thousand deaths, Then Italy ranked third with more than 128 thousand injuries, and about sixteen thousand deaths, according to statistics today.

On the other hand, Germany is ranked number four with more than 100 thousand cases, and more than 1500 deaths, then France, which has become the fifth with more than 92 thousand injured, and more than 8 thousand deaths.
