16 Apr We are donating face masks to countries affected by COVID-19
It is well known that there is a worrying shortage of protective equipment in many countries affected by COVID-19. The lack of such equipment is leaving doctors, nurses and other frontline workers dangerously ill-equipped to care for COVID-19 patients,
Our team at PlusVet Animal Health has been working to donate surgical masks and respirators to countries where our suppliers and customers are located. Up to now, we have sent protective equipment to six different countries in South East Asia, Middle East and Europe.
On one hand, the masks have been given to the local teams of our partners to protect themselves. In many countries, farms, feed mills, veterinarians together with whole the feed and food supply chain are considered essential businesses and need to work in safe conditions during the pandemic. On the other hand, our partners have given part of the masks they received to health workers in their respective countries.
With the help of local partners and personal friends, we also have sent respirators to Catalonia, where they have been given to several organizations: two non-governmental organizations that support health care centers and homeless people during the pandemic; a major hospital in Tarragona city; veterinarians working in the frontline of Public Health; nursing homes for the elderly and Catalan police forces.
On behalf of the whole team at PlusVet Animal Health, we wish you and your loved ones health and safety.
