The carmaker said via Twitter it is now producing 60 pieces a day. The respirators were developed by a team of researchers at the ČTU’S Institute of Computer Science, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC).
They are reusable, save filter material and are as effective as the highest standard respirators now available on the Czech market, Czech Radio adds.
