PHE RESPONSE TO COVID-19 | The first batch of protective shields is on the way to Lithuanian health care institutions

EURASHE member, Vilniaus Kolegija/ University of Applied Sciences and its Faculty of Electronics and Informatics together with the School of Robotics and UAB “CGTrader”, are in a hurry to help Lithuanian medical staff. Specialists will try to reduce the lack of face shields.

With the immense need for protective equipment against the virus that caused the global pandemic, the representatives of the Faculty of Electronics and Informatics of Vilniaus Kolegija/ University of Applied Sciences : Vytautas Netikša, Tomas Kasperavičius and Paulius Šakalys joined the action organised by the Robotics School in the course of which  the frames for protective face shields are being prepared.  The sequence of the device preparation is as follows: plastic sheets provided by the initiative coordinator UAB “CGTrader” are being joined with the frames printed at the Faculty. We are delighted that the first batch of thirty protective shields will reach our medical staff already today.

Although we are living in a state of unprecedented uncertainty, right now, the implementation of such a socially responsible activity is becoming increasingly important and necessary.
