Pakistani attains self reliance in making essential medical equipment to fight Covid19.
The contribution of Pakistani researchers, engineers and scientists brought this self reliance. They did a miraculous job toward attaining self-reliance in manufacturing of the essential medical equipment to fight Covid-19.
Pakistani attains self reliance
The equipment include: masks, sanitizers, ventilators and oxygenators that shows Pakistan has brilliant minds in the science and technology sector.
Moreover, the researchers and scientists of the country, once lagging behind in the science and technology sector, are now diligently working on manufacturing of such product.
Notably, the equipment help save people against the pandemic with self-reliance instead of depending on the aid from other countries.
Soon after the pandemic outbreak, the researchers team of National University of Science and Technology (NUST) took lead in developing disinfecting tele-operated robots and aerial spraying drones for decontamination of spaces.
They also developed robust and cost-effective testing kits for detection of coronavirus, high-quality sanitizers for microbial control, thermal monitoring camera to detect without touching, bilingual COVID-19 self-screening app and ventilators systems for short term stabilization of the patients.
While Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) was tasked to work on manufacturing of indigenous ventilators which were in the process of licensing.
APP report gives its credit to Minister for Science and Technology, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain who revived this dormant ministry.
He motivated the scientists, engineers and researchers to come forward and utilize their energies to make the country self-sufficient.
Recently, the Ministry of Science and Technology, in cooperation with Pakistan Engineering Council, hosted an exhibition of medical products at Comstech Centre.
There the country’s exhibitors showcased their potential to produce essential medical supplies.
According to Fawad Chaudhry, Pakistan would be able to export various items related to COVID-19 in the near future while cotton masks are being exported already.
