Ghughuti Bulletin


Around 63,000 Chinese-manufactured personal protective equipment (PPE) kits did not meet Indian standard criteria, said sources in the Union Health and Family Welfare Ministry on Friday. The latest consignment from China consisted of about 170,000 PPE kits, including donations for the use of healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of COVID-19 patients. Sources said these PPE kits were sent to the Defence Research and Development Establishment (DRDE), Gwalior, for quality testing. A PPE kit consists of masks, eye shields, shoe covers, gowns, and gloves, which doctors wear while treating coronavirus patients.
