Ford Vietnam joins in the battle against Covid-19 by gifting negative-pressure ambulance Transit, valued approximately 2 billion VND to Central Tropical Hospital.

Accordingly, as an action of heeding the call for support from the Central Committee of Vietnam Fatherland Front, Ford Vietnam has gifted 01 unit of negative-pressure ambulance Transit at proximately 2 billion VND to the Central Tropical Hospital through Vietnam’s Ministry of Health.

The model is a conversion from the conventional commercial Ford Transit. Thanks to its reliability, flexibility and reasonable price, many countries have converted the vehicle into transportations for hospitals. This is the first of its kind in Vietnam to be specialized for transporting Covid-19 patients.

Mr Dung Pham – Chairman of For Vietnam – informed: “The battle against Covid-19 has not yet come to an end, at this point to say the least. The well-being of our employees, customers and the community remains the best interest of For Vietnam. We hope the Transit will serve its purpose and assist the common effort by protecting the first-liners of medical staffs. This vehicle will surely benefit medical activities in Vietnam.”

Unlike conventional ambulance vans, negative-pressure vans are specifically designed to transport victims of highly contagious diseases, in this case it is Covd-19. The car is equipped with high-capacity ventilation and air-purifying system, decontamination using UV lights, primary medical equipment and respiratory support system. The air inside the container is constantly filtered and decontaminated, reducing chances of transmitting diseases to medical staff in their working process as well as to the outside environment.

The spacious compartment allows for installation of specialized bed and stretchers as well as working space for staffs. Its system of smart storage cabinets under the floor and on the ceiling is designed to accommodate a variety of medicines and emergency equipment. In addition, an electrical system is specially designed in the car to allow power for operating medical equipment. Ford Vietnam will hand over this vehicle to the Central Tropical Hospital in mid-May, right after completing customs procedures and registration.

Prior in April, Ford Fund of Ford Motor and CEO Bill Ford had established a global Contributory program, calling employees of over 20 markets chip in to support the common effort against Covid-19. Their goal was an impressive 1 million USD for every region of market.
