MALAYSIA Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Association (MACRA) has given 40 units of 1.0HP portable air-conditioners and 16 units of air-coolers to assist Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) in its continuous efforts to fight Covid-19.
Midea Scott & English Sdn Bhd donated 20 units of the air-conditioners and the 16 air-coolers worth RM23,564. The other 20 units of 1.0HP portable air-conditioners came from using part of the RM40,000 donated by council members of the association and the public.
This is only the first batch of air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation (ACMV) equipment to be donated to HKL. MACRA is in the midst of arranging a second batch of equipment to be dispatched to other hospitals in Malaysia.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) had made a wish-list of more than 500 items required for 48 hospitals across all states. The equipment consists of air-conditioning units, portable air-conditioning units, air-coolers, air purifiers, industrial fans and exhaust fans.
To help fulfil the wish list, MACRA has formed a task force of council committee members that include its regional members in Sabah and Sarawak. — April 8, 2020
