Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Trenas recognized ISAT U’s contribution in the containment of covid 19 in the City of Iloilo.
In a letter sent to the University, Mayor Trenas acknowledged the impact of ISAT U’s support to the front liners by providing personal protective equipment (PPEs).
Since the start of the quarantine period, ISAT U produced and distributed face masks and improvised face shields to the Iloilo City government, the Iloilo City Police Office as well as private and non-governmental organizations. Intubation boxes were also distributed to different hospitals.
The university also partnered with civic groups in the city to produce innovative PPEs and other tools.
ISAT U and Iloilo United Hazmat Volunteers joined for the production of protective suits. Currently, the FabLab is also working on the design, prototype, and fabrication UVC Room Sanitizing Lamp and UVC N95 Sanitation Box in partnership with JCI Iloilo.
