COVID-19: Legrand India to facilitate quarantine centres to support healthcare infrastructure
The company aims to support initiatives across India to aid the country’s fight against COVID-19
Legrand India has initiated support to the local government in the creation of quarantine centres and isolation wards in Kolkata, Odisha and Chhattisgarh. They are working with various government stakeholders across the nation with electrical products to be used for creating isolation wards and quarantine centres.
One of the key focus areas for Legrand India is healthcare, when it comes to giving back to society. Legrand is also supporting government hospitals and quarantine centres with disposable isolation beds as a proactive step to facilitate the accommodation of migrant returnees in the respective district’s quarantine facilities. The team has enabled support through its electrical products such as protection devices, wiring devices and UPS for hospitals and healthcare facilities countrywide, which will house over 2,000 beds and intensive care facilities for COVID-19 patients.
With healthcare in focus, the company is providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to doctors and medical staff in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Delhi and Kerala, to support the frontline workers in their fight against COVID-19.
Legrand has been conducting various activities across the nation to support several communities in the battle against Covid-19. To fight against the pandemic, apart from healthcare, Legrand India has provided 2.6 lakh personal protective equipment to electricians, journalists (Chennai Press club), NGO health workers, drivers’ community and police officials.
Speaking on the Covid-19 support extended, Tony Berland, MD and CEO, Group Legrand India, said, “As a socially responsible organisation, we at Legrand have always put health and safety at the forefront, be it for our employees or society at large. We saw the arising need for infrastructural support for isolation wards and quarantine centres across the country, and as a specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructure, we are working with government stakeholders to bridge the gap and fulfil the need to the maximum possible extent.”
