Capacity has been scaled up to produce more than 1 lakh PPE kits per day and cost has been slashed to nearly Rs 650 per unit from the about Rs 2,000 a piece of imported price. A PPE suit consists of coveralls, gloves, shoe covers, three-ply or N95 face masks, head gear and face shield. For blood or airborne high infections, it will include face protection, goggles and mask or face shield, gloves, gown or coverall, head cover and rubber boots.
