A mid the fast-spreading coronavirus pandemic in the US, a Sikh family based in the state of Indiana have made masks in an effort to help the public and first responders in the fight against the deadly disease, a media report said. After learning about the shortage of masks across the US via media reports, Gurinder Singh Khalsa called up his doctor friends and asked if he could contribute by making masks at home and packaged in sanitary conditions, said the American Bazaar report on Monday. Once he got the green signal, Khalsa, his wife Gagandeep Kaur and rest of his family got busy making more than 500 emergency masks packed with double layers of thick cotton fabric. “Based on online research and advice from public health practitioners, we have started stitching these general-purpose emergency masks,” the American Bazaar quoted Khalsa as saying in the report. He wants to give these masks first to the city officials, first responders, police and first departments who are doing a great job in the service of the city residents, according to the report. Khalsa believes that his emergency mask program would allow persons who cannot access the N-95 and medical masks to obtain reusable and washable masks for community use, it added. (IANS)
