Department of Pharmacy, BRAC University (BRACU) and BRAC University Pharma Society (BUPS) have been preparing alcohol-based hand rubs to fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
They took the initiative to help everyone so that preventive measures can be taken to contain the disease, a press release said.
Recently it has been found that patients with diabetes, especially those above 60 years, are at higher risk for more severe complications from COVID-19.
To minimize the risk of these complications, Department of Pharmacy of BRACU and BUPS provided more than 300 hand rubs on Saturday to the Department of Endocrinology of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University to be distributed among diabetic patients.
The department will continue the initiative.
