PGH receives air purifiers from Toyota and Denso Thailand
Toyota Motor Philippines brings air purifiers for PGH
MANILA – Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) turned over to Philippine General Hospital 20 units of air purifiers donated by Denso Thailand. The portable devices called Denso Plasmacluster Ion Generator suppress and remove airborne viruses, molds, and allergens in small spaces with limited circulation.
According to a statement from Toyota Motor Philippines, the devices are ideal for use in some of the government-run hospital rooms and in cars and shuttles used by frontline workers.
It was learned the air purifiers were previously tried and tested with free shuttle transport service from TMP and the Toyota Mobility foundation (TMF) to PGH staff at the height of the lockdowns due to COVId-19.
The UP-run Philippine General Hospital was one of the recipients of the Vios units donated by TMP to the Department of Health and other government and LGU-run hospitals to augment mobility support for the healthcare sector. (Melo M. Acuña)
