Responding to the clamor for additional transport for hospital workers and other frontliners due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine caused by the COVID-19 virus, Isuzu Philippine Corporation loaned several Isuzu vehicles to the local government of Biñan to help ferry the medical personnels in and about town.
The Isuzu vehicles, consisting of two D-Max pickups and one Mu-X unit were turned over to officials of the Biñan LGU last Friday. Following the strict government protocols on social distancing and disinfection, the three Isuzu light commercial vehicles were completely sanitized before being released.
IPC also loaned one Mu-X and one NLR PUV to the Medical City Hospital in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, which will be used as transport service for their frontliners. IPC continues to reach out to other medical establishments to help address their mobility problems.
“As the world, including the Philippines, faces an unprecedented health crisis threatening countless lives, our healthcare workers and frontliners—the doctors, nurses, medical researchers, hospital and clinic technicians, and other staff—have risked their own lives to help stop the pandemic, while caring for those who have contracted the disease. And they have been performing such selfless work tirelessly, without letup. With these vehicles, we at IPC hope that our dedicated and enduring heroes in the hospitals would find comfort and safety in their transport. Through our vehicles, we can help them fight the virus more effectively.” IPC President Hajime Koso said,
To help ease Isuzu owners’ maintenance woes, IPC’s 45 nationwide dealer network is also offering a 30-day grace period on all Isuzu vehicles with scheduled PMS (periodic maintenance service) during the enhanced community quarantine, while all Isuzu vehicles whose warranty coverages will be lapsing within the quarantine period will also be given a 30-day warranty extension.
IPC reiterates its service commitment to all medical personnel, whether direct or indirect to address and arrest the devastation brought upon by the CoVid19 pandemic.
