Another help from Aflofarm. The Pabianice-based drug manufacturer is not slowing down, and this time it's launching the #aflofarmpostronielekarzy initiative. The company will provide 100 protective visors to every single-entity hospital that has been adapted to receive patients with coronavirus.

The pandemic continues, and doctors and other medical services struggle to save the health and lives of thousands of Poles. Hospitals throughout Poland still lack the necessary means of personal protection. According to data by GIS, every sixth person infected with the coronavirus in Poland was a member of the medical staff - they accounted for 15.6% of all infections. As a result of the lack of adequate protection against infection, it is increasingly common that hospitals lack staff.

In order to support the medical services in hospitals, Aflofarm sends 100 protective visors each to all the single-entity hospitals throughout Poland.

This is not the first support provided by Aflofarm during the pandemic - so far, the company has donated packages of necessary personal protective equipment to 6,000 pharmacies throughout the country. The kits included protective visors, antibacterial gels and educational posters for patients. Moreover, the company also supported the Pabianice Medical Centre by purchasing a respirator.

We're doing everything we can to help the medical services fight the coronavirus. It is an expression of our concern for the safety of those who save our lives and health. We all face a very difficult task, and thus we must support each other – comments Jacek Furman, President of the Management Board at Aflofarm Farmacja Polska.

The list of all single-entity hospitals that were to be prepared to receive patients with COVID-19 was announced by the Health Ministry on 13th March. It includes 21 facilities all over Poland.
