Provide for the Needs of Healthcare Workers

There are various urgent needs for Frontline Workers (nurses, doctors, healthcare workers and providers).

Go Electric is focusing on one way we all can help now.

A simple tool, called Pulse Oximeters, is desperately lacking in many hospitals and clinics. This device monitors the saturation of oxygen in the blood.

During the current pandemic, pulse oximetry has allowed healthcare workers to properly evaluate the condition of patients diagnosed with COVID-19, while accomplishing the following:

  • evaluating efficacy of ventilators
  • evaluating whether the patient needs additional help breathing
  • determining efficacy of supplemental oxygen therapy and new treatments*

Pulse Oximeters Needed During COVID-19

In Washington State, a healthcare worker updates Go Electric on the dire situation.

"One of the devices we need in this work are pulse oximeters. Patients are being trained to either manually check their breathing or to purchase a pulse oximeter.

Unfortunately, pulse oximeters are not a covered benefit for most insurers and we are seeing a high rate of unemployment due to the outbreak."

Valley Medical Center is a public hospital located near Seattle. They have reported "a disproportionate share of vulnerable populations that have shown to be at-risk to COVID-19 infections."
"Besides a high proportion of Medicare and Medicaid patients, our hospital district is home to one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse populations in the U.S," our contact further relays. "We see a high proportion of immigrant populations, especially, from Russian, Vietnamese and Latino communities.  This results in a high level of health equity and social determinant issues that negatively impacts the health status of our community."

Your donations to Go Electric will be used for our Goal of supplying 400 Pulse Oximeters to Valley Medical Center in Washington State.

By the Numbers: What We're Facing

Electric Cars reduce carbon emissions by 6,777 pounds a year.

Let's review the numbers based on the current options for rideshare available to us and our dear First Responders:

 

In 2019, 110 million people used Uber...

There are an estimated 3 million Uber drivers in 65 countries (some 327,000 in 2015 and 750,000 in 2017 in the USA alone)

Lyft has claimed 700,000 drivers in USA and 1.5 million globally

As of 2018, there were approximately 207,920 Taxi Drivers in the USA alone.

Here's a little critical math for you:

3,000,000 Uber

1,500,00 Lyft

207,920 Taxis

---- Equals: 4,707,920 as an underestimation

4,707,920

x.   6,777 pound per car

---- Equals: 31,905,573,840 pounds of carbon emission worldwide

 

Other estimates arrive at the 1,234,920 Uber, Lyft, and Taxi Drivers in the USA alone generating 1,410,100,840 pounds of carbon emission annually in the USA by 2025.

Electric Vehicles Are Vital During Emergencies

When a disaster occurs, courageous First Responders must quickly get to hospitals, clinics, and other destinations to support and care for the needs of the public.

Many Frontline Workers use rideshare services to arrive to their destinations. But should they have to use their own funds to take care of this need?

Remember: Uber and Lyft generate
69% more pollution than
the trips they displace

 

CLICK TO READ Important Study: "According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, ride-hailing trips today result in an estimated 69 percent more climate pollution on average than the trips they displace... For ride-hailing to contribute to better climate and congestion outcomes, trips must be pooled and electric.”

In contrast, Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) are an important component of our technology portfolio for achieving energy security and sustainability.
