The entire world is going through a crisis. Coronavirus has put the world on halt with almost every country issuing a lockdown to keep themselves safe. Operations in all the industries have come to a halt as the number of cases and deaths is on a constant rise. 

To help fight against it, Governments have declared it compulsary to wear face masks while heading out. This caused a huge surge in need for supplies like face masks. To help deliver as many as possible, industries have joined together to help fight against the virus with designer Masaba Gupta being the latest. 
Yesterday, the designer took to her Instagram page to announce that while stores and factories had been shut, she has started the production of non-surgical masks at one of her production facilities. The masks that are being made from the material used for her garments and are reusable. "The team is small - with 3 workers who live at this same facility in quarantine and we are making sure the workers are being paid and taken care of," she wrote. 

The designer broke this news soon after ace designer Anita Dongre also revealed that her production units too were being used to create masks. Indian designers seem to be following suit as multiple luxury labels have also announced that they are contributing and trying to do their bit to help fight against the spread of the deadly disease.
