Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the UK is experiencing shortages of medical supplies. To help in the fight against the virus, PHBS has donated 1,000 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) clothing, 300 protective medical goggles, and 10,000 test kits to Guy’s Hospital and St Thomas’ Hospital, and Cambridge University Hospitals. PHBS UK campus also helped to facilitate the medical supplies donation from Construction Bank of China University (London) to Oxford Vaccine Group.
The third batch of 800 pieces of PPE clothing has arrived in England and will sent to University of Cambridge, while another batch of 4,300 test kits is scheduled for shipping after completing customs formalities. The contributions to purchase all those medical supplies were made by PHBS faculty, staff and alumni.
