Octavia Spencer is amongst many other actor and actresses who are doing their part and assisting health care professionals during this coronavirus pandemic.

“I, like many of you, have felt helpless in knowing how to help during this time.” Spencer stated on her Instagram post. She took to Instagram to announce her partnership with Miku Smart Baby Monitor, a real-time contact-free breathing and sleep monitoring for babies, and how they are being of service during this pandemic.

The monitors were donated to medical facilities in both Alabama and New York to “provide much needed relief to nurses as they navigate care for COVID-19 patients.”

Spenser even donated iPads to the medical teams to help them monitor respiratory and communicate with at least 10 different patients at any given time. On another Instagram post, she captioned, “I wish I could afford to put these in every palliative care convalescent home and hospitals all across the world.”
