Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) has certified 6 more companies to produce facemasks that are much needed to safeguard the public against the coronavirus infection.

The total number of certified nonmedical facemasks manufactures is now 29, according to the latest statement by UNBS. 

The standards regulator says the certification is in line with its mandate of consumer protection, aimed at protecting Ugandans from buying substandard non-medical facemasks which could be harmful to their health, in the wake of COVID-19.  

The number of companies certified to manufacture non-medical facemasks is expected to increase and as such, UNBS says it will issue updated lists periodically. 

A few weeks ago, government made it mandatory for everyone to wear a facemask while in public. This will be done along other preventive measures like social distancing in restaurants, markets, public transport and other public places.

In May, UNBS certified the first batch of companies that had requested to start producing masks. These included Lida Packaging Products Ltd, Southern range Nyanza Limited, Evergreen Safaries Limited, Jude color solutions Limited, Winfred Fashion designers Limited and Fine Spinners Limited

Meanwhile government has already begun giving out free face masks to Ugandans above the age of 6. This is aimed at ensuring Ugandans use masks that meet the required standards and therefore effective in protecting the users from the Coronavirus disease.
