An Indonesian businesswoman was worried about her friends working in hospitals.

Some had cried as they talked of the shortage of protection gear that left medical workers wearing plastic raincoats while treating suspected COVID-19 patients.

Maryati Dimursi asked her friends about materials and designs that protect better and settled on a suit she wants to offer to hospitals and clinics for free. She has a list of 20 hospitals who need her suits urgently and the tailors have begun sewing.

An official at one of the hospitals welcomes Dimursi’s suits. We have to be ready if the patients infected by coronavirus come.
