Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (Tevta) Chairperson Ali Salman Siddique briefed Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar about the authority’s efforts in the ongoing war on coronavirus.

The governor praised Tevta for playing a pivotal part in saving lives, a handout said on Wednesday. A total of 50 kits of protective gear made by Tevta were handed over to the governor. The kits comprise medical masks, face shields, gloves and personal protective equipment (PPE).

Ali Salman said Tevta has so far made over 60,000 medicated masks, 1,000 gloves, 500 face shields, 2,635 sanitisers, 600 PPEs which have been distributed to district governments across Punjab.

He continued five walkthrough sanitizer doors while splitter valves for ventilators have been manufactured employing the use of state of the art 3D printing.

He said Tevta deposited Rs7.2 million in the Chief Minister Punjab’s Corona Relief Fund while Rs6.3 million in Tevta’s Corona & Ration Fund.

In view of restrictions to limit the spread of pandemic Tevta started exploring alternate avenues for educating and training students. Consequently, e-learning Division has been launched where initially 16,500 students will be given online training under the CM’s Hunarmand Nojwan e-Learning Project. The e-Commerce Course has potential for its students to earn a minimum of 300 dollars per month.

The governor said that adopting safety measures would help prevent corona. He stressed that relaxation in lockdown shouldn’t be misconstrued as an announcement of coronavirus having vanished. The best way forward to combating this menace was to adopt safety measures in letter and spirit.
