Milan, 28 March 2020 - The Italgas Group's commitment to support organisations in the front line in the fight against the spread of Coronavirus continues and extends to the San Matteo Hospital in Pavia, the Guglielmo da Saliceto Hospital in Piacenza, the Spallanzani Hospital in Rome and the Cotugno Hospital in Naples, for each of which the Company has made a donation.
These donations are in addition to those arranged in recent days for the Sacco di Milano, Amedeo di Savoia-Asl Città di Torino and Azienda Ospedaliera di Padova hospitals.
In support of the Civil Protection action, Italgas made a direct donation and also yesterday launched the solidarity campaign "Together for Italy, donate your day to the fight against the Coronavirus", thanks to which Group employees can allocate the economic equivalent of the hours of their work. The proceeds will be supplemented by an equal amount donated by the Italgas Group and donated to the Civil Protection.
The intent of Italgas through these actions is to make available additional resources both for the Civil Protection and for the hospitals that will be able to allocate the contribution to the strengthening of the microbiology and virology laboratories, the activation of new beds or additional intensive care facilities, the purchase of medical devices and any other activity useful to improve support to the sick.
