The University of Stuttgart has received 500 surgical masks and two infrared clinical thermometers from the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan Tech). This friendly gift in times of corona was sponsored by the Taiwan Tech Alumni Association. Taiwan Tech is one of our partner universities in Taiwan, with which we are also maintaining a student exchange.
Prof. Wolfram Ressel, Rector of the University of Stuttgart, is very pleased about the support and expressed this in a letter of thanks to Taiwan Tech: “Even though the current situation is new and challenging for all of us, it shows more than ever how important international cooperation is. Only by working together and supporting each other can we manage and defeat this pandemic.”
The masks will be used at the University of Stuttgart in accordance with the SARS-CoV-2 hygiene concept. The Safety Department will be taking care of the distribution of the masks.
