Face Mask for the hearing impaired

Lockdown Innovations #4

I saw this video on FB a few weeks back where a deaf couple had innovated on the mask with a clear plastic over the mouth so that sign language could be understood. Later I found similar improvements had been made by a young school going kid in India.

How resilient we human beings are !!! We just get thrown on the mat by a virus and we get up, dust ourselves, praise some people, curse some people, and just get on with what needs to be done. This simple innovation speaks volumes to our resilience and it also gives us an important message that we will overcome this crisis too.

I just don’t want to keep feeling depressed or low because of the lockdown or because of the economy being in a standstill… we just put one step in front of the other and keep moving forward. Some tomorrow will be a day without the virus :).
