ISLAMABAD: Minister of Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said on Thursday that Pakistan produces its own sanitizers and disinfectants and is now able to export them.
Speaking at an event at COMSTECH, he said Pakistan faced a lack of hand sanitizers in the first ten days of detection of the first two cases of new corona virus in the country.
“We decided to make face masks, hand sanitizers, and walk-through gate sanitation,” he said.
The minister said the country produced its own sanitizers and disinfectants today and was in a position to export them. He added a committee was also formed to look for ways and means to produce Covid-19 testing kits.
Previously, he said the country must be proud of Pakistan’s organizations and professionals who have risen to face the challenges posed by Covid-19 crisis.
He said in his Twitter statement that the country could now produce its own face masks and protective clothing and be in a position to export sanitizers. He added that it was very close to producing N95 masks himself as well.
The minister said the test kits and locally produced ventilators were in the final stages of testing, bearing in mind the country imported all these items a few weeks ago.
