The hospital’s intensive care unit received two lung ventilators, each of which can operate for two patients simultaneously, as well as two hundred reusable professional protective suits and two hundred protective goggles for doctors.
During the equipment hand-over, Vadym Novynskyi said: 'The experience of China prompts that the key to success in the fight against coronavirus is universal strict discipline, tough measures introduced by the state and their rigorous implementation on the ground. This is a fair share of contribution by which each of us can help the state stop this common challenge today. I want to assure you that our Charitable Foundation continues the procurement process. The next shipments of equipment and protective gear have been paid, and as soon as they become available on the suppliers' side, we will be bringing them to Ukraine. Yet, I would very much like to know that this medical equipment is useful to the Mariupol hospital, particularly for rendering such medical aid as planned operations rather than urgent cases. We are praying in hope that the virus will recede after Easter. I am sure that the Lord will not leave us!'
The mayor of Mariupol Vadym Boychenko assured everyone that the city authorities took the necessary package of preventive measures, and today the situation is under control: only one case of coronavirus has been registered in Mariupol.
‘Consolidated efforts of city residents, its authorities and such philanthropists as Vadym Novynskyi give us hope that we will be able to contain the spread of the virus as much as possible. And today, thanks to this help, this up-to-date equipment, our real heroes, our healthcare professionals received a clear signal that they are protected at their workplaces. Thank you, Vadym Vladyslavovych!' said Vadym Boychenko addressing Vadym Novynskyi.
