Why the silence?
Without being a health care professional, I can only revert to what I know about innovation in general.

If health care professionals want it, they will inevitably get it.

Although there is likely to be supply/demand imbalances due to supply chain funnels.

Perhaps you are confusing silence with a lack of demand/efficacy/probability/utility?

If the majority of health care providers are demanding PPE/ventilators then we should make what they want/need to fill the short term capacity gap.

I’m a big fan of Y-Combinator’s Paul Graham, “Build things people want.”
