In the midst of the global health crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Sharp Philippines Corporation (SPC) donated eight (8) units of Plasmacluster Ion Generator (IG-A40E) and six (6) units of Air Purifier(KC-G50E) to the City Government of Muntinlupa, through Mayor Jaime “Jimmy” Fresnedi and Councilor Allan Camilon, last April 24, 2020. The units are turned over to Ospital ng Muntinlupa (OSMUN) and the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM), where most of the COVID-19 patients are being treated.
The Plasmacluter IonTechnology equipped units will be installed in the newly-built COVID-19 facility in OSMUN. Plasmacluster Ion eliminates airborne mold and suppresses activity of airborne viruses, bacteria, allergens and adhering odour providing a healthier environment for both Frontliners and patients in the battle against the virus.
The donation addresses part of the immediate needs of facilities who are working to slow the spread of the virus within communities and strengthen vulnerable healthcare systems against potential threats to public health.
