Coronavirus in Africa: Kenya's students making PPE kits

Dedan Kimathi University of Technology in Kenya is voluntarily making personal protection equipment in the fight against coronavirus.

The university is locally producing everything from face masks to protective suits. They're now looking into producing ventilators in order to boost the country's critical care capacity.

The World Health Organization has warned that severe disruption to the global supply of personal protective equipment is putting lives at risk.
