Also according to the pronouncement of the CEO of FitBit, the company must adjust its production according to demand, even if the virus is being controlled or if a "second wave" of it again compromises global health. In technical terms, James Park has not commented on the capabilities of the lung ventilator, but guarantees that it will be "more advanced" sold at a more affordable price than the current ventilators on the market.
"Be more sophisticated than the basic models," said the CEO. Although FitBit is a little behind in the production of fans, action can still be useful mainly in the United States, one of the countries with the most confirmed cases of COVID-19. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it will still take some time for the disease to be controlled on a global level. Because of this, the more equipment to assist in emergency treatments, the better for citizens.
According to recent information, the World Health Organization (WHO) is working on an application that will guide users (particularly those in countries with limited resources) about Coronavirus symptoms (COVID-19) to help them find out if they have the disease or not.
