A Short History about Why this Platform Exists

The global COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted existing supply chains for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), creating shortages in both health care and non-health care sectors. PPEs are crucial to maintaining safety of front-line service personnel (health care workers, retail workers, delivery people, etc.) and reducing the risk of infection. Perhaps more importantly, since in vast majority of the cases COVID-19 infections are fully or mostly asymptomatic, PPE shortages increase the risk of the spread of infection. One infected but asymptomatic front-line worker risks infecting all people they are interacting with. Thus it is crucial that all front-line workers have access to the PPE they need.
