Kyambogo University has joined the effort to curb the COVID-19 pandemic as it contributed 2000 face shields to the Ministry of Health.

These face shields, which are expected to be used by health workers were handed over by the university’s biomedical engineers and received by the Ministry Permanent Secretary, Dr Diana Atwine.

“A team of biomedical engineers from Kyambogo University have locally made face shields to protect health workers from COVID-19. The team through Silver Bolt donated the face shields to Dr. Diana Atwine to support the COVID-19 response #STAYSAFEUG,” states the post on the Health Ministry’s official Twitter handle.

According to Dr. Atwine, the donation was issued through Silver Bolt, a Ugandan non profit organization that educates and inspires youth to follow careers in Science and Engineering.

The Health Minister further added that inadequate PPEs had resulted in 530 health workers getting infected with the novel virus, with a fatality of six.

The biomedical engineers say that the shields are made of polycarbonate which makes them  easy to clean and a higher transparency with high visual clarity.
