Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed a bio suit to keep the medical, paramedical and other personnel engaged in combating COVID-19 safe from the virus. Defence Ministry said, the suit has been prepared with the help of the industry and subjected to rigorous testing for textile parameters as well as protection against synthetic blood.
 
The protection against synthetic blood exceeds the criteria defined for body suits by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
 
The Ministry said, DRDO is making all efforts to ensure that these suits are produced in large numbers and serve as robust line of defence for the medics, paramedics and other personnel in the front line combating COVID-19. It said, the industry is geared up for production of the suit in large quantities.
 
The current production capacity is 7,000 suits per day.
 
The Ministry said, efforts are on to ramp up the capacity to 15,000 suits per day.
