Corona Prevention Cell formed at IU

The authority of IU formed a 'Corona Virus Prevention Cell' and made Professor Dr. Paresh Chandra Barman the chief of it. As a part of precautionary measures the IU authority decided to produce hand sanitizer with the assistance of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Moreover, germicide and masks were decided to be produced from this cell. The VC of IU Professor Dr. Rashid Askari inaugurated this programme of producing hand sanitizer, germicide and masks under the Corona Virus Prevention Cell of IU. Pro-VC of IU Professor Dr. M Shahinoor Rahman and Treasurer Professor Dr. Selim Toha were present in the programme. The VC said in this connection, "We have to adopt ‘an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure’ policy for Bangladesh because, the curative measures are not adequate for our needs. Maintaining social distancing, stay-at-home and personal cleanliness, practising respiratory hygiene and seeking early medical care for fever, cough and difficulty breathing are the must-do things for the prevention of coronavirus infection. But most importantly, we have to bolster our courage." After producing lots of hand sanitizers in the lab of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, they, along with masks, have already been distributed among the people of the adjoining localities. The team of the Corona Virus Prevention Cell under the supervision of its head Professor Dr. Paresh Chandra Barman has sprayed the adjoining localities of the university with germicide (produced in the aforesaid lab). The team has also worked in the localities of Kushtia and Jhenaidah where the teachers, officers, employees and students of this university live in and some busy places of the said two towns.
