“This donation from Tropicana and Thai Odyssey is much appreciated as the items will help to keep all of us safe, ” Fawziah said.
Mohd Zapi urged Malaysians to continue supporting frontliners.
“These are unprecedented times and many healthcare frontliners are working under extraordinary circumstances.
“We hope Malaysians will continue to stay vigilant and follow the government’s standard operating procedure.
“They should continue to contribute in reducing the burden on our healthcare frontliners in recognition of the fact that the war against Covid-19 is far from over, ” he said.
Chuah said Thai Odyssey was happy to assist those on the front lines fighting the pandemic.
“We would like to thank Tropicana for the chance to work together in producing and donating these much-needed face shields, ” he said.

The specifications for the face shields complied with the hospital’s standards.
