Prof. Roengsak Leetanaporn, M.D., Vice Dean for Hospital Affairs and Director of Songklanagarind Hospital said, “Although the situation has improved with the easing of lockdown measures, but the medical team still needs to keep the guard up as our medical experts are now working hard on researching for the benefit of the industry plus the nation. The support of KN95 mask is indeed useful to medical personnel since it is a necessity that is still scarce until now. The hospital needs to implement repetitively use these respirators as they need to be washed and sterilized according to hygienic standards. We would like to thank Gulf Group for realizing the importance of people in medical industry”
