Alliance Global Group, Inc. (AGI), the holding firm of tycoon Dr. Andrew L. Tan, is donating one million liters of 70% disinfectant ethyl alcohol to help strengthen the government’s efforts in fighting the spread of COVID-19.
Around 850,000 liters of 96-percent ethyl alcohol will be denatured in order to convert them into sanitizing and disinfectant alcohol, which can be used by hospitals, clinics, and government agencies that are tirelessly working to curb the spread of the coronavirus all over the country.
“Through the Department of Health, we hope to distribute disinfectant alcohol to as many, if not, all the hospitals and clinics that are treating COVID-19 patients all over the country. We need to protect our front liners – the doctors, nurses, and other healthcare and medical personnel – whose lives are at risk in protecting and treating people from this virus,” says Kevin Andrew L. Tan, chief executive officer, AGI.
Aside from hospitals and other medical institutions, this huge volume of disinfectant alcohol will also be donated to other front liners such as the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), as well as marshalls from various Local Government Units (LGUs) who are also exposed because of their work in enforcing the government’s Enhanced Community Quarantine in Luzon.
“We are one with the nation in this fight to heal our country from COVID-19. We salute all the frontliners who are our real heroes during this challenging time. We join the nation in prayer and unity as we hope to rise together from this crisis as one Philippines,” adds Tan.
