Business DeskĀ  :
The Directorate General of Drug Administration (DGDA) has approved the surgical mask of Minister Hi-Tech Park and permitted its commercial manufacture.
In a press release, Minister said they took the initiative to manufacture high-quality triple-layer surgical masks with melt-blown fabric when the market was flooded with high priced low-quality single layer masks.
Minister's "Safe Life Surgical Mask" has three layers of protective layers with melt-blown which is 99 percent and it is antibacterial. It will ensure protection from coronavirus and other airborne diseases and germs, it added.
Wearing a mask is very important to prevent the transmission of coronavirus.
Experts said the use of masks can reduce sneezing, or coughing and hand-to-mouth infections.
Major General Md Mahbubur Rahman, Director General of the DGDA, expressed satisfaction over the quality of the mask, saying, "Minister Surgical Mask is high quality mask which has triple-layer with melt-blown fabric."
He also urged to market these surgical masks at affordable prices.
MA Razzak Khan Raz, Chairman of Minister Hi-Tech Park, said the mask will soon be available in the market at Tk 10 per piece.
"We're working with the promise of delivering this mask at affordable prices to the people, with the slogan 'Manusher Jonno, Minister-er Ponno', but not for any business purpose," he added.
