The telecommunication service provider, Ooredoo Maldives, has donated 50 intubation boxes to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).
The intubation boxes are used as a protective device during the intubation procedure. The device will be kept over the head and shoulder of the patient when the health practitioner connects the patient to the ventilator.
The intubation boxes were handed over to NDMA by Ooredoo Maldives’ Acting Chief Commercial Officer, Hussain Niyaz on behalf of the company. Niyaz said the safety and security of frontline workers are of utmost importance to contain the spread of COVID-19. He further said that it is hoped that the intubation boxes will help as an added protection and encouragement for the health care workers and that it is everyone's responsibility to cooperate and contribute to contain the virus.
