Volkswagen Group supports doctors and hospitals with major donation of medical supplies from China
To ensure supplies for doctors and hospitals in Germany, the Volkswagen Group is organ-izing medical materials in China in the short term. The total value of the goods to be donated by the Group is about €40 million. The equipment – in-cluding face masks, gloves, disinfectants, clinical thermometers, protective goggles and protective clothing – is to be made available to medical personnel providing emergency treatment and care. Last week, Volkswagen had already donated about 200,000 FFP-2 and FFP-3 face masks for public health protection.
