DELIVERY OF MEDICAL EQUIPMENT TO FIGHT COVID-19 IN THE REPUBLIC OF KOMI CONTINUES
Tuesday, June 30, 2020
The second shipment of medical equipment and expendable supplies purchased with personal funds of LUKOIL President Vagit Alekperov arrived to Usinsk (the Republic of Komi).
Usinsk Central District Hospital received a portable ultrasound machine, surgical suction units, a video gastroscope, a high-definition display, a video processor et al. as part of the support program.
This shipment of medical equipment is the second received by Usinsk Central District Hospital. In early June, the hospital got a delivery of equipment needed to fight COVID-19: ECG recorders, expendable supplies and individual protective gear for its medical personnel. A shipment of artificial respiration units, surgical beds, bedside monitors and surgical instruments is expected in the near future.
The hospital received 50 types of equipment in total.
The Republic of Komi has loosened the high-alert mode restrictions starting on June 17. This, however, does not apply to Usinsk and Vorkuta. The reason lies in the difficult epidemiologic situation that persists in the cities.
LUKOIL has been supporting medical institutions of the region since the very outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
