Looking at the grave situation in Italy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, homegrown tyremaker Pirelli has donated a cache of medical equipment to the health care community in Lombardy, the northwestern region of the country where the tire maker is headquartered.

Pirelli also has donated more than 7,000 hours of work hours to the “Together for Italy, Together for Research” initiative promoted by the company during the COVID-19 pandemic which equal in value to around 220,000 euro, an amount that Pirelli will double.

Pirelli said its donation — comprising 65 ventilators for intensive care therapy, 5,000 protective suits for health care workers and 20,000 face masks — is being carried out in partnership with Lombardy’s regional government and with the cooperation of China Construction Bank.
