Isuzu PH takes action, lends D-Max and mu-X units to help transport front liners during COVID-19 Enhanced Community Quarantine period

March 30, 2020

Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), responding to the immediate needs of the country’s healthcare and frontline workers fighting to stem the outbreak of the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (CoViD-19), lent on March 28 two units of the Isuzu D-MAX and one Isuzu mu-X to authorized representatives of the Binan local government.

Following the strict government protocols on social distancing and disinfection, the three Isuzu light commercial vehicles were completely sanitized and sterilized, and will be delivered to the Municipality of Biñan, Laguna.

These vehicles will be used to support the front liners in Biñan and Sta. Rosa Laguna, to transport them going to and from the several hospitals to help them fulfil their critical duties in this public health crisis.

IPC also lent one mu-X and one NLR PUV to Medical City in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, which will be used as the Medical City's front liners' service. IPC still continues to reach out to other hospitals to address their mobility problems.

IPC President Hajime Koso paid tribute to the country’s healthcare workers and front liners. “As the world, including the Philippines, faces an unprecedented health crisis threatening countless lives, our healthcare workers and front liners—the doctors, nurses, medical researchers, hospital and clinic technicians, and other staff—have risked their own lives to help stop the pandemic, while caring for those who have contracted the disease. And they have been performing such selfless work tirelessly, without letup. With these vehicles, we at IPC hope that our dedicated and enduring heroes in the hospitals would find comfort and safety in their transport. Through our vehicles, we can help them fight the virus more effectively.”
