COVID-19: Improving medical care in our Peru communities

Monday, 28 September 2020

Our Peru team has donated five oxygen cylinders, with their manometers, to three health facilities near our Cerro Corona mine. This will help improve medical care of patients hospitalised for Covid-19.

The equipment was distributed according to the health centres based on their number of patients. Two of the health centres, in Hualgayoc and El Tingo, had originally been built by Gold Fields.

“We currently do not have enough equipment to face the Covid-19 disease, so this support is very significant for all of us who work in health centres," said Nelba Rojas Pérez, Manager of the Hualgayoc District Health Micro-network.
