MANILA – Philippine Army (PA) troops on Friday transported 70 camper mats donated by bedroom fixtures company Uratex Foam to medical professionals of the Lung Center of the Philippines in Quezon City.

Reservist 2nd Matteo Guidicelli, in coordination with the management of Uratex Foam, was assisted by the PA in transporting the mats using military trucks from the company's factory in Canumay, Valenzuela City to the hospital.

He was also aided by the PA Civil-Military Operations Regiment in the transportation of the mattresses.

Meanwhile, PA commander Lt. Gen. Gilbert Gapay lauded Uratex's generosity to front-liners working to contain the spread of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

“Amidst the fight against Covid-19, your efforts will make our health professionals more comfortable that will boost their physical stamina in serving the people infected by the virus," he added.

Medical workers are among those exempted from the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine. (PNA)
