Amidst the rising threat of novel Coronavirus, the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group (VINATEX) continues its efforts to make the lives of garment workers in Vietnam safe, and therefore plans to provide 6 million antibacterial face masks to the garment workers by the end of February.
VINATEX will be daily providing around 10 tonnes of fabrics to garment firms across the country to ensure there is abundant availability of face masks.
The Group, along with its member firms, also plans to provide 12 million anti-bacterial face masks for the market in March.
The firms are also urging Government to issue some regulations for these face masks so as to win the trust of users (Also read: Textile companies in Vietnam producing antibacterial masks).
People all across the country, including workers of garment and textile industry, have been advised to not only wear face masks to combat the virus threat, but also wash their hands regularly with sanitisers.
Here it is important to note that the World Health Organisation, better known as WHO, has declared the outbreak of the deadly virus as a public health emergency of global concern.
