N95 Masks - The proposed mask will be the first of its kind which shall have additional filters and fabric layers with better-sterilized air inhalation. The mask shall be designed in such a way that it shall be more compatible with persons suffering from COPD and for a long time wearing. Anti-Viral and Anti-microbial gloves- These single used coated gloves can provide an additional means of defense against the horizontal transmission of common hospital pathogens and play a vital role in controlling COVID 19. In addition, the coatings may also be used for other PPE.
