Minister of Labour and Rehabilitation, Mahdi Al-Amin opened on Sunday at The Libyan-Korean Center in Building and Construction professions a production line for sewing protective medical clothing.

According to the minister, the new line will produce around 150 pieces of clothing per day, in order to make up for the shortage of protective clothing amid the exceptional circumstances resulting from the outbreak of Covid-19.

The minister said that the step comes to support the medical staff as they fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The factory will make trousers, gowns, and head wear, as said by the minister, noting that other initiatives have been put forward to support the medical sector, such as maintaining some equipment inside the center's workshops.
