Maskargo lifts innovative intubation boxes
Following an initiative called "the acrylic intubation box charity project" by a group of anaesthetist doctors at the KPJ Rawang specialist hospital in Selangor, near Kuala Lumpur, Maskargo has shipped 14 intubation boxes to the federal states Kota Bahru, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu.
CEO Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh: "As we operate to these airports, we agreed to fly the goods as part of our CSR efforts."
The intubation boxes are distributed to seven government hospitals. The boxes for Johor, Sabah and Sarawak were flown on 3 April, for Kelantan the following day. On another note, 94 units of ventilators arrived in the night of 5/6 April on board Malaysia Airline's PAX flight MH389 from Shanghai to Kuala Lumpur. They will be distributed to the Covid-19 hospitals throughout the country. (ah)
