New Delhi: Tech company Samsung (Samsung) has pledged to pay the US $ 5 million, or 37 million rupees, to help India facing the second deadly wave of Corona. He is willing to donate to the central and state governments and promote the healthcare sector with the necessary medical equipment for hospitals, as part of his contribution to the fight against Covid-19.

This decision has been taken after proper consultation with various stakeholders in India and assessing the immediate needs of the local administration.

Samsung contributes to India’s fight against Corona

Samsung will donate the US $ 3 million to the Center as well as the states of Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. In addition, the company has also decided to help the healthcare system that has been struggling for the past few weeks and will invest $ 2 million in providing medical supplies including 100 oxygen concentrators, 3,000 oxygen cylinders and one million LDS syringes. These will be given to the states of Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

Explain that LDS or low dead space syringes reduce the amount of drug left in the device after injection, which leads to better use of the vaccine. A large amount of the vaccine is left in the syringe after use in existing products. Technology has shown up to 20% greater potency and if the current syringe gives one million doses, the LDS syringe can deliver 1.2 million doses with the same amount of vaccine. Samsung has helped the manufacturer of these syringes increase production capacity.

In addition, Samsung, as part of its initiative, will also bear the cost of vaccination of more than 50,000 eligible employees and beneficiaries in India. It will also include all of Samsung’s experienced consultants, who work at electronics retail stores across the country.

‘Employee safety is our priority – Samsung

Samsung said in its statement that “the health, safety and welfare of the employee is our absolute priority. To help employees and their families access information and medical supplies as well as hospital facilities and home care, we have established in-house facilities and teams across the country.”

Significantly, in April 2020, the company contributed Rs 20 crore to India’s fight against the epidemic. This included donations to the central government and support to the local administration in Noida, where the company provided thousands of masks and PPE kits to hospitals to avoid Covid-19.
Samsung finally stated that he salutes all professionals who have worked tirelessly in this battle.
The entire Samsung family stands with India in this fight against Corona which includes their employees and their allies from across the country.
