Chitkara University gets 5 Oxygen Concentrators from National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan in a fight against Covid-19
With the help of the governments of both countries, National Tsing Hua University and Taiwan Education Centre in India have donated five oxygen concentrators to Chitkara University to aid in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Oxygen concentrators with an output of 8 LPM (litres per minute) will aid devices that extract oxygen from ambient air. It will be a molecular sieve (artificial zeolite) operated by electricity that will filter nitrogen from ambient air.
“The Chitkara community has received five oxygen concentrators as a token of friendship to strengthen our multilateral ties,” said Ashok Chitkara, chancellor, Chitkara University. “As the country fights the second wave of Covid pandemic, oxygen concentrators are among the main instruments for the treatment of patients. This gesture has not only boosted our partnership but also proved that we are together in this global pandemic. These devices will be used for the welfare of the society and for needy patients under the patronage of the Chitkara Community,” he further added.
Chitkara University established its partnership with the Taiwan Education Centre in December 2019. The association aims to promote and enhance educational and cultural cooperation between Chitkara University and National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. Chitkara University is a pioneer in its focus on providing a truly global experience to the students. Global Education is the key area of continuous emphasis at Chitkara University.
