Ropar, April 27

To provide an additional layer of protection from infection to healthcare workers, Dr Ashish Sahani from the Indian Institute of Technology in Ropar, along with Dr Vivek Gupta and Dr GS Wander from Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH), Ludhiana, has developed an aerosol containment box.

This box can be made of readily available material and need not depend on material supply chains which have been snapped due to the lockdown.

Dr Sahani said coughing, sneezing or aerosol generating procedure in Covid patients led to the spread of heavy viral load among the workers and despite using PPE kits and taking appropriate precautions, they get infected due to which higher than normal infection rate has been noted among them.

The newly developed aerosol containment box can be quickly made of wood, thick PVC sheet, Velcro, pasting and fixing materials. —TNS
