Allianz-Tiriac Asigurari supports the fight against the novel coronavirus and donates 80,000 euro

Allianz-Tiriac Asigurari supports the efforts to combat the novel Coronavirus by equipping the modular hospital built by the Daruieste Viata / Give Life Association in the courtyard of Elias Hospital in Bucharest, as well as other hospitals across the country, with five ICU devices worth 80,000 euros to treat severe cases of COVID-19. 
Virgil Soncutean, CEO of Allianz-Tiriac: "Allianz-Tiriac is one of the most important players in the Romanian insurance market, one of the first lines of defense against risks of any kind, but also the largest health insurance company, so we fully understand the impact of this pandemic and the implications for public health. We are in the middle of an unprecedented crisis and we need quick solutions to save as many lives as possible. We have joined the race against the clock to fight the novel Coronavirus and adhered to the initiative to invest tangibly in the development of the medical infrastructure by equipping it with five ICU devices to offer an extra chance to life to patients in a serious condition". 

The Daruieste Viata / Give Life Association has started the construction of a modular hospital in the courtyard of Elias Hospital in Bucharest, where severe cases of COVID-19 will be treated. The hospital will treat patients with COVID-19 in a critical condition, the objective being to isolate them and prevent the transmission of the virus to other patients in a serious condition treated in the ICU departments of existing hospitals. Two of the five ICU devices will be directed to the modular hospital, while three of them will be sent to hospitals across the country.

Allianz-Tiriac shall also support fundraising in an account dedicated to Daruieste Viata, inviting its employees, collaborators and partners to donate and thus help the super-heroes of these trying times, doctors and medical staff, in the fight against the novel Coronavirus.

The first donation in this regard, worth 5,000 euro, has already been made by Allianz-Tiriac Private Pensions. The amounts voluntarily directed to this account will be used for the purchase of protective medical equipment for medical staff in emergency hospitals across the country.

Virgil Ichim, CEO of Allianz-Tiriac Private Pensions: "These days we put our hope in the professionalism of doctors. But in order for them to be able to fulfill their mission, they also need our help. Any gesture of solidarity counts and has the power to make a difference".
