Jalandhar, April 8
To support the medical staff and doctors, IK Gujral Punjab Technical University (IKGPTU) has developed face shields for them. These will fulfil the urgent need of the Indian Medical Research Association (IMRA) for doctors and nurses who are treating Covid patients.
Prof Ajay Kumar Sharma, Vice-Chancellor, IKGPTU, said in the first phase, the university’s target was to manufacture 2,000 face shields for Kapurthala, Jalandhar and other nearby districts. He added that in future, the university would provide the same to other states as well.
The VC said in the initial stage, the university manufactured 50 face shields and handed over these to the medical staff through the Kapurthala administration.
Kapurthala DC Deepti Uppal gave her thanks note to the VC. The DC said it was a proud moment for the district, which was contributing towards the world-level crisis management.
The VC said the university had taken the initiative with Tata Technologies at Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Centre for Innovation, Invention and Incubation (CIIIT).
