The outbreak of the global pandemic Corona (covid-19) is affecting, among other nations, our country. This silently devastating virus has generated a certain shortage in consumer products, notably those related to protective and preventive measures.
Nonetheless, the Algerian academic community and our fellow researchers, along with our brave students, in the universities of: Batna, Tizi Ouzou, Blida, Boumerdes, Algiers, Setif, Constantine, Oran, as well as the CDTA and “Pasteur” institute of Constantine, successfully manufactured paramedical products, disinfectant gels, protective masks, PCR’s, artificial respiration prototypes, and many other products.
For this, I wish to reiterate my thanks and also express how much we are indebted to our academic community, and research teams who alway stood and proven their genuine and true sense of responsibility in hard times.
Once again, I would like to share with them my pride, and utmost recognition for their involvement and the longstanding commitment they have demonstrated in serving our country, particularly in the current health and economic circumstances.
May Allah reward them and help us all eradicate this deadly pandemic, and protect our people who, with no doubt, will emerge from this terrible ordeal.
