Teachers and students of a high school in the Vietnam’s central province of Thua Thien-Hue have produced hand wash to help prevent the coronavirus spread.
The pupils are in Class 10 Chemistry 1 of Quoc Hoc Hue High School for the Gifted. Local media reports.
The hand sanitizer, which is made from simple chemicals such as alcohol, hydrogen peroxide and glycerol, has a mild scent and no side effects for the skin. It is suitable for all people.
Nguyen Phu Tho, headmaster of the school, said that the school board and former students of the school would finance 42 hand wash bottles of 500ml each for classes at the school.
Earlier, 60 hand wash bottles were given to Ngo Kha Primary School, Thanh Thuy Primary School and Binh Dien High School in the province.
Class 10 Chemistry 1 will call for more financial support for the further production of hand sanitizer to donate to more local schools.
Some schools in Thua-Thien Hue have piloted hand wash production amid the rapid spread of corona, including Gia Hoi and Thuan An high schools.
Dao Anh Quang, head of the Department of Chemical Technology and Environment at the Hue Industrial College, has also produced and provided hand wash for free for local people for the coronavirus prevention.
