Asim Jofa will start production of protective gear for doctors fighting Covid-19

In less than 48 hours, we have successfully created a final prototype approved by medical experts, shared the designer
30 Mar, 2020

Asim Jofa along with his team has come up with special protective gear for medical staff that selflessly continues to work in hospitals in order to treat patients suffering from Covid-19.

In a video uploaded on Instagram, the designer showed what the first fabric prototype of the protective suit looked like, all while extending gratitude to his team for helping him out in this noble cause.

The intention is to distribute these suits and masks in order to help those fighting this pandemic on the frontlines.

"Our mission is to produce self-protection suits and masks for medical staff and doctors. We want to distribute these free of cost to help them," explained Jofa, adding, "We have followed all norms of protection required."

In a more recent video, he shared that Dr. Seemin Jamali (Executive Director at Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre) and her team had approved their prototype and they will be going into production today, less than 48 hours after the first sample:

It's so heartwarming to see everyone going their part. The only way we can contain the spread of coronavirus is if we take individual and collective responsibility.

Atleast someone rises from the occasion. While others still busy bashing and mocking the Govt.

Again I would say this may put health workers at risk if does not meet international standards. Fabric ones are not standard....

Good job! Just one suggestion: They may want to put the ZIP on the Backside instead of the front just ike a Surgeon Gown. Keep it up!

@Wajid That 'noble cause' is making money. Let's see if and what answer you get to your question, regarding the price of this gear. I mean Armani is also now making protective gear, YSL is producing masks and making millions, then why not our designers.

The are being made by GTex Uniforms, and Asim Jofa is taking credit for it. GTex has already provided our unit with these dresses free of cost. Its pity that Asim Jofa is using their work and branding it as his own idea. https://www.facebook.com/gtexuniform/
