IIT-Kanpur creates bio bubble for convocation | Kanpur News


KANPUR: In a unique initiative, IIT, Kanpur, has created a bio-bubble for its 54th convocation on Tuesday to be chaired by PM Narendra Modi and Governor Anandiben Patel and chief minister Yogi Adityanath as guests of honour, to prevent spread of Covid.
A bio-bubble is a safe and secure environment isolated from the outside world to minimise the risk of Covid-19 infection and permits entry to authorised persons after testing negative.
IIT Kanpur will be hosting convocation this year after organising the ceremony virtually last year. It will be the first time when a convocation will be held in the country in a bio-bubble. The institute got RT-PCR tests done of all the attendees on Monday and will conduct Rapid Antigen Test on Tuesday before opening the gate of the convocation venue.
