    Even it was started in 2016, it is disappointed for me to know this great technology so late that is saving thousands of lives there. This nation and technology inspiration for the rest of the world. Thank you so much dear REAL ENGINEERING Community for your valuable knowledge.

    I hope my country has too, but our government is corrupt and our people are shortsighted. 🙁

    3rd world country Rwanda limited funds but having an innovative medical delivery process for the general betterness.
    While 1st world country america with alot of resources is so busy destroying themselves with racism, violence, illogical entitlement and mass shooting.
