IN THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
3. PHYSICAL DISTANCING

Families having to share the same airspace with others, or where living space is overcrowded, are at a high risk of infection.
This kit, costing less than USD $6 for the complete frame, provides an affordable means of managing transmission of highly infections variants. The frame can support tarpaulins and a range of locally available cladding materials from thatch to wooden planks.
Furthermore, unlike a tent, the lower edge of the roof frame can be elevated onto posts or a low wall to provide improved living space.
