MANILA, Philippines — SCG International Corp. (Philippines) Inc. in partnership with D&L Industries’ Lao Foundation is providing support to the country’s fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement, D&L said the partnership is donating innovative virus protection equipment for healthcare frontliners exclusively developed by SCG, the local unit of the Thailand-based conglomerate.

These include a patient isolation capsule designed to protect medical personnel transporting COVID-19 persons who are under investigation or management.

The tube, specially-built by  the Thai manufacturing giant, has open-close slots around the patient, making it easy for doctors and nurses to perform necessary emergency medical procedures for COVID-19 patients.

It is also equipped with powerful air filters to prevent possible airborne virus transmission from the patients.

Last July 23, officials of SCG and the Lao Foundation formally turned over the first-ever such capsule to officers of the Ospital ng Muntinlupa as the first beneficiary.

SCG International Corp. has 21 global business offices covering strategic markets worldwide, serving 2,000 corporate customers in more than 50 countries.

The Lao Foundation is the CSR partner of D&L Industries, a listed specialty foods ingredients, plastics and oleochemicals firm.
