DUBAI: ViroMasks is producing half a million of its reusable face masks each month to guard against COVID-19, the UAE-based company said.
It plans to increase production to 1.5 million masks by August by automating some of the production process, partner Usman Khalid told Arab News.
The company’s masks combine various technologies that “neutralize COVID-19 within 30 minutes of exposure, whereas in regular fabric (the virus) can last from 48 hours to a week or so,” Khalid added.
The masks are produced in the UAE by AMCO, which also manufactures uniforms for other sectors, such as military and security. The venture so far is “self-funded,” Khalid said.
