Mahasarakham U has a facemask-making club
Professors and students of Mahasarakham University’s Business School are producing protective facemasks for public distribution amid concerns about a scarcity.
Associate Professor Naphaphorn Phonnikornkit, in charge of the programme at the northeastern school, said the masks will contain any mucus and saliva released in a sneeze or cough – and they’re reusable once washed.
It was a voluntary, free-time endeavour for the professors and students, who assembled in Naphaphorn’s residence in a division of duties based on their individual skills.
They even paid for the necessary materials themselves and brought sewing machines from home.
