Owing to the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic, half of the people who didn’t have the foggiest ideas what Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits are, do so now. Everyone from healthcare workers, hospitality staff, salon staff, and even grooms and brides are donning these protective blue shields for protection against the virus infection.
While the PPE kit is strictly advised to be discarded off after the first use, this didn’t stop the twitteratis with the ‘great Indian jugaad’ mentality from presenting out ways this PPE kit could be prevented from being wasted in the Desi way.
Recently IPS officer of Arunachal Pradesh, HGS Dhaliwal, posted a picture of PPE gowns being used in fields as makeshift scarecrows which immediately went viral, leaving everyone in splits and getting a slew of mixed responses.
Some people raised concerns over this recycling of used PPE kits that are advised to be disposed off carefully as per specific guidelines.
Others lauded the amazingly Indian way of not letting go into the waste.
What do you think of these PPE scarecrows? Tell us in the comments.
