The Gambia (December 02, 2020) — COVID-19 has cast new light on an existing problem in The Gambia – drug and medical supply shortages. As one of the poorest countries in the world, the dire lack of PPE and devastating shortage in various medication posed a massive threat to disadvantaged Gambians amid the escalating COVID-19 situation.
When the Interplex team in Scotland learned about The Gambia’s shortage in basic needs required to fight against COVID-19, they were inspired to play their part and sprang into action. Pulling their own resources together, the team donated necessities such as rice, disposable face masks, paracetamol and sanitizers to a non-profit organization, Pandi’s Legacy, inspiring other teams in Interplex to donate re-usable face masks for the same cause.
Through Pandi’s Legacy Sport and Education, 330 disadvantaged children from the school, 200 children from the football academy and young mums with severe medical needs were able to receive the help and support needed in this pandemic.
Interplex is grateful for the opportunity to contribute back to the community. We are proud to lend a hand to those who are most vulnerable during the pandemic and hope that our contributions would make a difference in protecting lives against the virus. We hope that The Gambia will see an improvement to the situation and be successful in containing the spread of COVID-19.
Bangalore, India (September 01, 2020) — The overwhelming exponential rise in COVID-19 cases has pushed Bangalore to re-impose a shutdown in July, with the gradual re-opening of businesses and offices outside containment zones. However, even with government intervention, Bangalore is among the ten worst-affected cities in India, with high number of active cases.
There are few hospitals in Bangalore that are well-equipped in the fight against this pandemic. Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases in Bangalore is a Tertiary Care Specialty Centre for respiratory and chest diseases, and is one of the hospitals that manages COVID-19 cases. As an entity operating in India, Interplex believes we should do our part for the local communities that we are located in.
To support the fight against COVID-19, we donated medical supplies and equipment ranging from surgical masks, ECG machine, Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure machines (Auto BiPAP) and High Flow Nasal Oxygen (HFNO) machines to the SDS Tuberculosis Research Centre & Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases in Bangalore, India.
Interplex is grateful for the opportunity to contribute back to the community. We are proud to stand with the people protecting our community and hope that our support and contributions would make a difference in Bangalore’s battle against the pandemic. We hope that Bangalore will see an improvement to the situation and be successful in containing the spread of COVID-19.
Chennai, India (August 20, 2020) — India has been recording the highest number of daily COVID-19 cases and is currently the epicenter of the global coronavirus pandemic. With every day bringing about an escalating number of cases, government interventions to contain the virus have been stepped up. According to Al Jazeera, more than 250,000 samples are being tested daily after months of sluggishness, but experts say that this is insufficient for a country of nearly 1.4 billion people.
As an entity operating in India, Interplex believes we should do our part for the local communities that we are located in. We donated medical supplies ranging from hand sanitizers, fumigators, surgical masks, ECG machines and a High Flow Nasal Oxygen (HFNO) machine to a COVID-19 designated hospital, Govt Medical College Hospital in Tiruvallur, Chennai, India.
Interplex is grateful for the opportunity to contribute back to the community. We are proud to stand with the people protecting our community and hope that our support and contributions would make a difference in Chennai’s battle against the pandemic. We hope that with the aggressive testing and containment strategy in Chennai, the curve for daily COVID-19 cases will flatten.
Batam, Indonesia (July 9, 2020) — New outbreaks of COVID-19 have emerged as the world reopens. Indonesia is the worst-hit country in South-east Asia, with over 75,000 COVID-19 cases and over 3,600 deaths recorded as of 13 July 2020. The Indonesian government has since launched a risk-zone map for COVID-19 in Indonesia. The cities and regencies are color coded into 4 main colors – red zones – areas with high rates of transmission, orange zones – areas with medium risk of infection, yellow zones – low-risk areas and green zones – either completely free of the disease or have not recorded any new cases in four weeks, with a 100 percent recovery rate of patients.
Batam is classified as an orange zone and this has impacted the city’s ability to fully reopen and for its economic activities to be in full swing. To better control the spread of COVID-19, the government has reached out to several businesses in Batam for urgent need of medical supplies and PPE for the healthcare workers and frontliners.
As an entity operating in the local community, Interplex is doing our part by donating face masks, face shields and testing kits to healthcare workers and frontliners in Batam. We are proud to support these people who are protecting the community and we share the same hope for Batam to successfully contain COVID-19 and be classified as a green zone.
Interplex is grateful for the opportunity to contribute back to the community and we hope that Batam will soon be able to reopen its international port.
New York, USA (April 30, 2020) — America is one of the hardest hit regions of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), with over 800,000 cases as of April 21, with New York City among the hardest-hit places in the U.S. The surge in COVID-19 cases places a strain on the capacity of hospitals and medical supplies. We are heartened by Billie Jean King National Tennis Center’s contribution, transforming their tennis courts to a temporary hospital, and we are rising to the challenge too.
In our own way, we are giving back to communities. Globally, masks are in high demand as they are essential in the prevention against COVID-19.
Baring and Interplex have donated disposable face masks to Billie Jean King National Tennis Center Temporary Hospital in Queens, USA. We hope our humble contribution made a difference to the healthcare professionals battling COVID-19.
