Kochi: In the wake of the partial opening of schools in Kerala, Kochi-based e-commerce retailer DiagunCart will give away anti-Covid kits to 5,000 schoolchildren across Kerala. The free kits will be delivered to the students' school addresses in the coming days.
Each kit consists of two washable and reusable cotton masks, five three-ply ultrasonic masks with nose pins and 10 ml hand sanitizer. The free kits will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis to the first 5,000 orders placed through www.diaguncart.com.
Jijy Philip, Director, DiagunCart, said free kits will be delivered only to schools with at least 10 orders. In a school, a maximum number of 200 kits will be given away free of charge, he said. "But bulk orders will not be entertained. Students have to order individually and one student is permitted to order only once," he explained.
The company has also launched attractively-priced packages to schools and students. In the package, schools and students can order three-ply ultrasonic nose-pin mask at Rs.1.50 (market price Rs.15); 500 ml sanitizer bottle at Rs.80 (market price Rs.250); N95 mask for Rs.20 (Rs.90); PPE kits for Rs.150 (Rs750); surgical gown at Rs. 65 (Rs.200); 200 micron faceshield for Rs.15 (Rs.100); 300 micron faceshield for Rs.60 (Rs.250) and Infrared thermometer with 1 year warranty for Rs.850 (Rs.4000). For schools and students, 5 litres of sanitizer with a market price of Rs.2500 will be available for Rs.550. For orders above Rs.350, delivery charges will be waived.
At the peak of Covid19, DiagunCart was in the news when it sold surgical masks at Rs.3 while the market price was Rs.20. The company has its own facilities to quickly deliver products across the state.
