The personnel of Wuhan Baijia Maternity Hospital receiving ASI Group's package
In order to contribute to the Wuhan's population's, medical personnel's and authorities' efforts to combat the Covid-19, ASI Group sent two packages of masks last week. They have been delivered to the Wuhan Baijia Maternity Hospital, an institution of particular importance given its purpose.
A total of 5,000 masks - 2,500 provided by ASI Logistics and 2,500 provided by ASI Solutions - have been received by the personnel on March 11th.
The masks sent are in compliance with the recommendations applied to the medical facilities. They protect wearers from the splashes and sprays. It is essential for the medical personnel to be equipped accurately as they are in daily contact with potential or confirmed infected people, they also work in daily contact with fragile people who need to be protected from any form of threat to their health.
This product is thus detrimental in such a context, medias have even reported some US hospitals having to close due to the shortage. As such, we are pleased our humble donation can help those in the frontline to be safe while preventing further expansion of the epidemic.
Before the epidemic, China was manufacturing 20 million masks per day according to the state media Xinhua. In the aftermath of the outbreak, the production has been boosted and some carmakers have even been enlisted to increase the manufacturing capacities (Bloomberg).
We hope that these measures ensure the safety of all Chinese civilians and medical workers.
ASI Group team is wishing the best to all the people directly or indirectly affected by the virus not only in China but all over the world!
