The Ministry of Textiles said in a statement that it has taken several steps to ensure that the quality and quantity of PPE kits rise to the required standards within a very short period of two months. This helped India to become the world’s second largest PPE kit manufacturer.
The ministry has taken steps to ensure that only body-covered kits are permitted to be issued to certified companies across the entire supply chain, the official statement said. In addition, the Mumbai Textiles Committee is currently testing and certifying PPE body kits for health workers and others. Domestically, the process of importing the machine from China was delayed.
In the face of severe shortage of PPE kits in the country, many companies have started manufacturing PPE kits under the direction of the government. The complete kits and kits made by Kitex brand are available in the market including gown, shoe cover, 3 layer mask, gloves, goggles and face shield.
India is the world’s second largest manufacturer of PPE body coveralls
