by | Apr 7, 2020

Hyderabad: Coronavirus aka covid19 has rattled our healthcare system. More so, a relatively less focus on the equipment required for the healthcare professionals to deal with the exponential demand of services during the pandemic has been a subject of discussion these days.

One of the students from Hyderabad, Abdul Shukoor, along with his team has given it a serious thought and came up with a simple solution to cater to the growing needs of medical personnel and relief workers viz. face shields and glasses using the 3D printer.
K. T. Rama Rao, Minister of IT Telangana, appreciated this effort and directed the Digital Media officials to coordinate with the students in fulfilling the need of medical fraternity and the relief workers.
Dr Talha Faiyazuddin President, SIO Telangana lauded the efforts of Abdul Shukoor and team, also announced the “Service through Education” 2020 award. SIO has also pledged to contribute to the first 100 prints.

Dr Talha further requested the good samaritans and NGOs concerned to help these students in this cause.
In face of such a crisis unfolding in all the sectors of life, it is incumbent on the students, who define the future, to serve society through efficient and novel utilization of the Education they have been imparted with. These students lead the way in this regard.
