Bosch Malaysia steps up CSR efforts with RM100,000 equipment donation to hospitals

During the peak of COVID-19, Malaysia logged more than 20,000 new cases per day on average. With 78.1 percent of the Malaysian population being vaccinated and the continuous rise of vaccination rate, the new cases have subsided to a daily average of 6,000 lately with the lowest record of 4,782 cases on 25 October. Yet the long fight against the pandemic has caused a major strain on the medical field. According to World Health Organisation, Malaysia was reported to record over 80 percent of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) bed occupancy rate for more than 6 months and only dropped to an average of 66.6 percent in early October.

Responding to the specific and critical needs of hospitals, Bosch joined hands with Great Heart Charity Association to donate an Arterial Blood Gases Machine (ABG) for Hospital Sungai Buloh; an Intensive Care Closed Incubator for babies, 5,000 units of disposable face shield and 66 units of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Hospital Ampang worth over RM100,000.
