During this time of COVID-19, the need for a complex Multi-tool that was both simple to create and use was identified, in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19 at taps and door handles in shared public spaces, such as malls, toilets and communal taps in townships. Therefore, a key application of an innovation by the principal investigators, Dr. David Oyedokun and Kai Goodall towards fighting COVID-19 was identified. This led to the IEEE HAC (Humanitarian Activities Committee) and SIGHT (Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology) funded project named Tool for COVID-19 Spread Prevention to mass produce 2 500 units of the tool. The tools are 3D printed with PLA Filament which is 100% biodegradable in order to make the project sustainable. These 2500 tools produced through the above funding for donation to communities in South Africa.
