Fight against Covid 19:
ThomasLloyd and BioPower intensify their help in the fight against Covid-19 in Negros Occidental
As the number of Covid-19 cases is rising sharply on the island of Negros, Philippines, the ThomasLloyd Group and its partner BioPower have been quick to respond and support the local population.
The two partners, with the support of donors from St. Scholastica's Bacolod Alumnae and Negrense Volunteers for Change Foundations, donated an Emerging Infectious Disease (EID) facility to the Bacolod City Regional Hospital.
The air-conditioned facility can accommodate 22 extra patients, equipment, and medical worker facilities. The medical unit was built under the direction of doctors and is adjacent to the regional hospital to augment the original bed capacity and facilitate patient management and work of the nursing staff.
The facility was inaugurated and handed over to the staff of Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in ceremony - respecting social distancing measures - in the presence of representatives of BioPower, on behalf of ThomasLloyd and the partner foundations. Mike Airey, ThomasLloyd Group Managing Director and CEO Asia Pacific said: “We support all efforts made to alleviate the effects of the pandemic, especially with our local partners and the people of Negros Occidental. Together, we remain steadfast in facing this challenge.”
This initiative comes in addition to various actions carried out by the ThomasLloyd group and its partner BioPower in the fight against Covid-19 on the Negros Island. Earlier this year, the two companies donated two mobile swabbing units and medical equipment to the province and city of Bacolod.
