Due to the critical shortage and artificial rise in price of personal protective equipment and disinfectants in Ukraine, the team of the Rubizhne unit of the pharmaceutical company Microkhim decided to give a batch of second-class safety respirators and antiseptics for free to medical needs. Employees of the company consider such an event a priority, because even if the dynamics of the spread of the disease continues to grow, doctors will continue to lead the reception of citizens, despite the threat to their own health.
“Recognizing the level of risk to which doctors are exposed every day, the Microkhim team unanimously decided to transfer to them about 2,700 second-class respirators and about 2,200 antiseptics for hand treatment. At least for a while it will be able to help them in the difficult fight against the COVID-19 epidemic in our country, “- said Irina Skorokhod, the first deputy director general of Microkhim.
In addition, at the regional level, the company provided charitable assistance in the form of personal protective equipment (masks and disinfectants) to the Rubizhne City Executive Committee, the Rubizhne National Police Department, the Lugansk Regional Association “PLWH”, branch of the Probation Center in the Luhansk Oblast, Severodonetsk Department of SES.
Due to the fact that the vast majority of Microkhim products are vital for people with chronic cardiovascular diseases, neurological problems, etc., the company decided not to stop the production process.
As a socially responsible enterprise, Microkhim cannot stop production even in the context of nationwide quarantine. However, we have taken a number of additional security measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. First of all, it concerns the disinfection of transport and premises, the use of personal protective equipment and adherence to the special mode of transportation of finished medicines. All these measures should maximize the safety of the staff and the uninterrupted production of the products needed for the sick, since the main value of the company is people. These are the staff who make up our team and those who trust us with their health, ”said Microkhim CEO Igor Pogromsky.
