The Guwahati Press Club with support from IndianOil took a noble initiative distributing Infrared Thermal Scanners to all the major media houses of the State.
The step was taken as a precaution against the spread of the novel coronavirus amongst journalists and media personnel who are working as frontline workers, reporting from the most unsecured places.
The scanners were presented to representatives of the media houses including print, electric and web portals.
The Guwahati Press Club, on behalf of the entire media fraternity, expressed their gratitude to IndianOil for sponsoring the thermal scanners.
These thermal scanners are used to measure body temperature, as a means to detect symptoms of COVID-19.
The event was attended by many officials of Indian Oil. Mr. PK Kakoty, GM (Lubes), IndianOil AOD, thanked the media for their tireless efforts and for supporting IndianOil during these crucial times and requested for their support in the future too.
Earlier The GPC had also distributed sanitizers, gloves, and PPE kits amongst journalists for their safety while working on the frontline.
