The covid-19 pandemic has created a spike in the demand for oxygen locally and at the global level which has in turn led to a sustained shortage of oxygen. Most local hospitals do not have piped oxygen and have limited oxygen concentrators. This led to the establishment of a team, led by a faculty member of the department Prof. Madara Ogot, who is also the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research Innovations and Enterprise and Dr. Richard Ayah, Director of Science and Technology Park and also faculty member of school of Public Health.
