DRDO develops bio suits for doctors, paramedics engaged in treating coronavirus patients

NEW DELHI: India’s premier defence research institution DRDO has developed a “bio suit” to protect doctors and paramedics engaged in treating coronavirus-affected people from the infection.

Scientists at several DRDO laboratories were involved in developing the “bio suit” which will act as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for the healthcare personnel, officials said.

They said considering the high demand of PPEs across the country, steps are being taken to produce at least 15,000 suits per day. (AGENCIES)
