PSTC-ZSP gives DOST faceshield to frontliners in ZSP
About 1,000 units of face shields were distributed by DOST IX thru its Provincial S&T Center in Zamboanga Sibugay to the medical and service frontliners of the province from 28 September 2020 to 02 October 2020.
The recipients include the Zamboanga Sibugay Provincial Hospital, Provincial Police Office, 102nd Infantry Brigade – Philippine Army, Zamboanga Sibugay Provincial Information Center, Zamboanga Sibugay media partners, PLGU-Zamboanga Sibugay, and the LGU-Ipil.
The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in partnership with DOST-MIRDC, DOST-PCIEERD, and PDMA Inc. launched the face shield project entitled ’’Ligtas Laban sa Covid19 Face Shields Handog ng DOST-MIRDC’’. It is a collaborative effort which is spearheaded by DOST-MIRDC which aims to produce face shields for donation to medical and service frontliners in response to the call of the ‘Bayanihan to Heal as One Act’ in beating the Covid-19 pandemic in the Philippines.
This said distribution of face shields was already the second batch of distribution of DOST-designed face shields. DOST-IX thru its PSTC-Zamboanga Sibugay also turned over the first batch of face shields in April this year to private and public hospitals in the province.
