As part of its continued fight against Covid-19, Hindustan Aeronautic Limited has produced and handed over more than 300 Aerosol boxes to various state governments including Karnataka, UP, Maharashtra,
AP, Telangana and Kerala to be used in hospitals. The transparent box acts as an insulator between the doctor and the patient. It can significantly reduce the possibility of Covid-19 transmission to doctors and medical staff treating Corona patients. “The results are encouraging and we can cater to more hospitals and states in this hour of need”, says R Madhavan, CMD, HAL.
