The PPE or personal protective equipment essential for doctors and health staff attending COVID 19 patients were imported until two months ago. With the increasing demand for PPE, there were many complaints from doctors and health staff with insufficient PPE kits for them. The nurses union even filed a case in the Supreme Court to provide proper protection for them with PPE kits.
Only now, after three months from the start of the corona crisis in January, PPE kits started to be made in India. They were producing only two lakhs such kits per day from the start of this month from 52 units. Now the central government has increased it to 4.5 PPE kits per day from 600 units.
