Eneh said, “The world as we know it, has irreversibly changed as a result of this pandemic. It is heartwarming to see corporations, government agencies and individuals unite to battle the spread of the coronavirus.

“To play our part, Xirea Apparels has retrofitted and dedicated four production lines to the local production of medical PPE

“Local production capacity will be ramped up for the following items in response to the COVID-19 pandemic: certified disposable coveralls, medical/surgical scrubs and caps, surgical masks and

other miscellaneous garments.
