Log 9 Materials, a Bengaluru-headquartered nanotechnology start-up, has partnered with the Rotary Club of Bangalore Orchards, to donate its latest product CoronaOven to various government hospitals/Covid Care Centres in Covid-hit districts of Karnataka.
The CSR initiative is a part of Log 9’s continued social responsibility efforts to contribute towards India’s collective fight against Covid-19 virus. Among the hospitals that have so far benefitted through this joint initiative of Log 9 and Rotary Bangalore Orchards Trust are — District Hospital Bagalkot, District Hospital Yadgiri, and District Hospital Vijaypura. Rotary Orchards Bangalore also itself donated some of Log 9’s products to hospitals like Victoria Hospital, KC General Hospital etc in Bangalore.
CoronaOven is a first-of-its-kind sanitization chamber designed and launched-to-market by Log 9 Materials; the product uses UV-C light to kill Coronaviruses and other pathogens from object surfaces in as less as 4 to 8 minutes. In healthcare settings such as hospitals, clinics and nursing homes, the product can be used to safely flash sterilize objects of daily use such as masks, gloves, eye goggles, PPE suits and face shields, medical equipment, etc., and thus it not only reduces chances of surface-to-human transmission to health workers in close contact with infected patients but also plays a pivotal role in sterilizing PPEs for re-use by healthcare teams (particularly useful if there is a shortage or limited availability of masks, PPEs, etc.).
Speaking about their CSR initiative, Akshay Singhal, Founder & CEO, Log 9 Materials says, “It gives us immense pride to deploy our cutting-edge product CoronaOven, which has been scientifically designed to prevent surface-to-human transmission of the virus, entirely free of cost in government hospitals in some of the worst Covid-affected areas of Karnataka. This initiative was achieved with the support of the members of Rotary Club of Bangalore Orchards, who helped us in identifying the hospitals that were in dire need of a disinfection product like ours.”
For the last two months or so, Log 9 has been offering CoronaOven at highly discounted rates (or even free of cost at times) to government hospitals, public institutions, CRPF, traffic police personnel and State Police Departments in Karnataka and other states. Till date, some of the reputed healthcare providers in the country that have installed CoronaOven inside their hospital premises are AIIMS-Delhi, Fortis, Medanta Medicity, Narayana Health, and Max Healthcare.
