Ilim Timber provides charitable assistance to St.Petersburg as part of the fight against COVID-19.
«In a pandemic situation we have tightened labor safety requirements and provided personal protective equipment for about 2,000 of our employees at plants in Bratsk and Ust-Ilimsk. At the same time, we found that the situation in St. Petersburg, where Ilim Timber’s head office is located, is much more complicated than in the regions. Moreover, every day it becomes more serious. We considered it our duty to help the medical institutions of St. Petersburg and, if necessary, we will continue to support them,» — noticed Alexander Sovetnikov, General Director of Ilim Timber LLC.
Due to the escalation of the epidemiological situation in St. Petersburg, the Clinic named after Peter the Great was urgently converted to provide assistance to patients with COVID-19 and can simultaneously place up to 264 patients with coronavirus infection. The work of the department of infectious diseases will involve doctors from the University’s clinical facilities and senior medical students.
Rector of the North-Western State Medical University named after I. I. Mechnikov Sergei Sayganov emphasized: «The emergency situation of the coronavirus pandemic has led to an increased need for personal protective equipment for medical institutions, and we are very grateful to everyone who showed himself as partial and found the opportunity to help right now.»
