Huoshenshan is an emergency-specializing hospital, built in Wuhan over only 10 days – January 23rd to February 2nd – in response to the current coronavirus outbreak. The hospital is operated by the Chinese authorities, and is designed to isolate and treat patients infected with the 2019-nCov coronavirus.
The Nilfisk equipment arrived at the hospital on February 4th, and is being used by T&RAIN Group to clean the hospital following the building and construction work that took place. This will ensure that all facilities provide an optimal hygienic standard for incoming patients, who began arriving this week according to China Daily.
Serdar Ülger, Group Senior Vice President of Nilfisk, responsible for sales in Asia and Pacific, comments:
“We are deeply saddened to see the current development of the coronavirus in China and beyond. As a global company, with a presence in China, we want to act responsibly and support the communities where we operate. In this case, we are putting our products to work at the much-needed Huoshenshan Hospital in Wuhan.”
Nilfisk offers a range of professional cleaning products used to clean hospitals across the world, including floor-cleaning machines, vacuum cleaners and high-pressure washers. Nilfisk has donated a range of these solutions, and they will be used over the coming days at Huoshenshan Hospital before it is closed to prevent further spread of the virus.
