Which is the real issue?
Coronavirus – the infectious disease which has caused many deaths globally. No country has escaped the effects of the deadly virus. Not long after China, Italy and Spain became infected, Romania declared a state of emergency in March. Security measures, sanctions, measures that changed the daily rhythm of the lives of each citizen were adopted.
The solution we found:
Thousands of suspected patients, thousands of cases of infected patients and hundreds of deaths were registered in Romania. But what do we do with those who have been infected? Their life depends on the doctors and the medical system which, in situations like this need equipment.
Damen Shipyards Galati has supported the community with the purchase of protective equipment such as gloves, visors, masks, protective chemises, hygienical- sanitary materials. Also, two EKGs, one ventilation system and two disinfectant devices were purchased by Damen for the hospitals and ambulance.
