In pictures: Covid-19 response

18 Jan 2021

Since the spring of 2020, we have been supporting partners with infrastructure for frontline staff and patients. Last year, we shipped out nearly 3000 units to Covid-19 response programs in 22 countries. Here, they serve as information hubs, quarantine wards, screening centres, triaging units, offices and changing rooms for medical staff.​

We are pleased to be able to support our partners and their staff who dedicate their lives to save others in this pandemic.
