The noontime variety TV show “Eat Bulaga” donated brand new 3D printers to the University of Santo Tomas for the production of personal protective equipment (PPE) amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the university’s hospital accommodates possible COVID-19 patients, the school will be producing visors for the face shields needed by its frontliners, using the printers. UST extended its gratitude to the show via its Facebook page last Monday, March 30.
