Unither Pharmaceuticals ship more than 3000 protective suits to support hospitals in Wuhan and Hubei province fighting the Coronavirus

First identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, the Coronavirus has killed more than 1000 people. According to AFP, Hubei is at the heart of the epidemic with 96% of registered deaths and 74% of contamination cases. The main symptoms of this contagious virus include fever, cough, chest pain, dyspnea (shortness of breath) and lead to more severe lower respiratory infections such as pneumonia.

« In the past few weeks, Wuhan and Hubei hospitals have been overwhelmed with the number of patients infected by the Coronavirus. Unither Pharmaceuticals has a local drug development centre in Wuhan and we want to help the local community. We therefore decided to work with the Hubei Charity Federation, in order to support local hospitals and the courageous doctors in their fight against this highly contagious and deadly virus » said Eric Goupil, CEO of Unither Pharmaceuticals.

Unither Pharmaceuticals teams (in China and in France) joined forces for this donation and successfully shipped protective clothing to hospitals and doctors in Wuhan and Hubei province. 3368 protective suits have been bought in France and sent to 9 hospitals and organizations located in Wuhan and in three severely impacted cities in the province - Huanggang, Xiaogan and Jingzhou.  

Our message to the doctors is “Jia You Wuhan! Jia You Hubei!”  Your efforts will be crowned with success !
