Vedanta has enabled mass production of personal protective equipment (PPEs) in Gurugram, Haryana, in a move aimed at supporting frontline healthcare workers and doctors during COVID-19 outbreak.
The company has imported 23 PPE machines recently in collaboration with the Ministry of Textiles, and has teamed up with authorised apparel manufacturers to roll out over 5,000 PPEs per day. PPEs are a critical gear for healthcare workers and India, like most other countries, is working overtime to procure PPEs for the safety of its health workers.
Vedanta has so far produced around 15,000 PPEs. The company has also provided more than 3.5 lakh masks through its business units to local communities and has handed over another two lakh N95 masks to the Ministry of Health.
