GILGIT: A team of the chemistry department of the University of Baltistan has developed a local organic ‘hand sanitiser’ to prevent coronavirus infections in remote areas of the region.

On the request of the Skardu district administration, the varsity has started bulk production of alcohol-based bleach-free hand sanitiser for free distribution to the health workers and general public.

Vice-Chancellor Dr Mohammad Naeem said on Friday the team had produced the hand sanitiser from local ingredients.

“Unfortunately, there is lack of hand sanitisers in the region, even the administration and health workers have no access to such a facility,” he said.
