Coimbatore and Tiruppur districts are major textile hubs in the country. The textile industries have now taken on a new role. They are stepping up to do their bit in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

Several units are now looking at manufacturing emergency healthcare requirements. 90 units in Tiruppur and 55 in Coimbatore have registered as manufacturers of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Most of the manufacturers in Tiruppur make masks and PPE kits. On April 9 Mumbai received 13,000 PPE kits from Coimbatore.
