Korindo Donates PPE (Hazmat Suits) to Hospitals in Papua
Jakarta – On Friday (29/5) the Korindo Group donated 3,500 hazmat suits to the Regional General Hospitals (RSUD) in the Regencies of Merauke, Boven Digoel, and Mappi to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Papua.
The hazmat suits, which are Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that consists of an impermeable whole-body garment worn, serve as protection. The suits are intended to help prevent health workers in the region from being exposed to COVID-19.
The donation from Korindo came as a response to the Papua’s Covid-19 Task Force announcement stating that 34 medical workers had had direct contact with the virus recently.
The hazmat suits provided by Korindo will be distributed to the Regencies with the support of the National Agency for Disaster Management (BNPB).
In April, Korindo had secured and donated 120,000 masks to the residents of Papua despite the shortage of masks that Indonesia was facing. The BNPB distributed 120,000 masks.
