To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, EVRAZ has allocated more than RUB16.5 million to support medical institutions in Kuzbass region. The Group has purchased 250,000 masks, 75,000 pairs of gloves, 3,000 pairs of protective eyewear, 3,500 litres of disinfectant, 36 contactless infrared thermometers and 35 artificial ventilation devices for hospitals in Novokuznetsk, Tashtagol, Mezhdurechensk and Osinniki.
In addition, EVRAZ is funding a modern laboratory that will be launched to detect COVID-19 based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing at Novokuznetsk’s municipal clinical infectious disease hospital No. 8. The laboratory, which will make it possible to receive test results in one day, will also have new equipment that can work with different types of infections without any additional adaptation.
EVRAZ has also purchased two new UAZ vehicles for the Tashtagol regional hospital, which will be used by medical personal when visiting patients in remote areas.
