MIRI: Organisations and volunteers here continue to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) to the frontliners in combating the Covid-19 pandemic.

Yesterday, a group called #Sew4FrontLinersMiri handed over 630 isolation gowns, 200 caps and 100 boot covers to Miri Hospital.

Teo Yen Luan, co-founder of the group and also the proprietor of Blue Green Dress Maker, handed over the PPE to the hospital director Dr Jack Wong outside her (Teo’s) business premises.

Group co-founder and coordinator Nor Azlina Samin, #Sew4FrontLinersMiri volunteers and Miri Hospital matron Hartini Sinow were present to witness the handing-over ceremony.

According to Nor Azlina, the PPE was the second batch given free to Miri Hospital. Recently #Sew4FrontLinersMiri donated 1,245 isolation gowns to the same hospital.

“We thank everyone in making the PPE project a reality,” she said.

Dr Wong also thanked the volunteers and sponsors for their commitment in helping to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Although there is no new Covid-19 cases at Miri Hospital the war against Covid-19 is not over yet. We hope the public will continue to play their part in breaking the chain of Covid-19 infection, such as practising social distancing and using face masks when out in public places,” he said.
