Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-03-25

As the Health Department has issued advisory to use sanitizer at workplace if hand washing facility is not available, students of Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) and Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in Berhampur have taken up the task of making hand sanitizers for distribution among government employees.

 

Officials said, the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Berhampur and an Industrial Training Institute have jointly produced the hand sanitizers for distribution to state government employees who are on duty amid the coronavirus outbreak.



 

ITI principal Rajat Kumar Panigrahy said, “We have produced around 350 bottles of 30ml hand sanitizers for use by on-duty government employees. We will hand these over to the Berhampur Municipal Corporation for distribution.”

 

Panigrahy said, “As there is an acute shortage of hand sanitizers in the market due to sudden surge in demand, we have decided to give them away to government employees for free.” The hand sanitizers were produced at an IISER laboratory under the supervision of Panigrahy and 3 staff of the ITI along with faculty members of the institute’s department of chemistry. In view of the shortage of hand sanitizers, some traders in the town are selling products of much inferior quality at inflated prices.

 

Head of the department of chemistry, IISER, Berhampur, Rakesh Pathak said, “Our hand sanitizers have been produced as per World Health Organization recommendations.”
