MASkargo has transported a number of intubation boxes for government hospitals in Malaysia dealing with Covid-19 patients. The shipment is the result of an initiative called The Acrylic Intubation Box Charity Project by a group of anaesthetist doctors at the KPJ Rawang Specialist Hospital.
The boxes for Johor, Sabah and Sarawak were flown on April 3 while the balance for Kelantan was shipped the following day.
MASKargo chief executive lbrahim Mohamed Salleh said, “The doctors developed a great initiative but they had problems with delivery due to the Movement Restriction Order (MCO) imposed to curb the spread of the virus.
“They approached MASkargo for assistance to send the 14 pieces of intubation boxes to Kota Bharu, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu. As we operate to these airports, we agreed to fly the goods as part of our corporate social responsibility efforts.”
The airline also transported 94 ventilator units on board flight MH389 which landed in Kuala Lumpur on April 5.
