Ten new ventilators for medical centre’s ICU

FASHION retailer Bonia has donated 10 new medical ventilators to University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) to help patients battling against Covid-19.

Bonia founder Chiang Sang Sem, who presented the items to UMMC deputy director Chew Yee Yean during a simple ceremony, said the ventilators were worth a total of RM550,000. They were selected after consulting medical experts.

Chiang added that the devices were one of the smallest and lightest intensive care ventilators in the world, weighing less than 10kg and making it extremely suitable for emergency work within the intensive care unit (ICU).

Also present at the ceremony were UMMC chief nursing officer Hasimah Zainol and the matron of UMMC ICU.

Bonia had previously handed over six ventilators to the hospital, and the remaining four were handed over during the ceremony.

“While hoping that the government can lead the people to win this arduous war against the epidemic, the people must also do their part and get the economy back on track.

“This pandemic has shown the strong spirit of mutual assistance by Malaysians.

“It is truly touching and Bonia will continue to contribute to the fight until the war against Covid-19 is won,” said Chiang.
