The United Metallurgical Company (AO OMK, Moscow) purchased and delivered to the Nizhniy Novgorod Ministry of Health another shipment of over 145,000 items of personal protection for medical personnel (the Company being represented in the region by Vyksa Steel Works, AO VSW). The region's hospitals are taking delivery of 10,600 overalls, 100,500 masks, 20,500 respirators, and 15,000 shoe covers.

A LEON PLUS ventilator has been installed at the Vyksa Municipal District Central Hospital. This is the most recent of the 55 ventilators OMK has purchased for the region. There is also a plan to purchase 3 disinfection gates filled with an antiseptic spray for the Vyksa Central District Hospital.

In addition, OMK is paying for VSW employee and Vyksa resident testing for COVID-19 for those people who come into contact with large numbers of people by virtue or their jobs. This free test has already been administered to 2,000 people. This, alongside other steps, is stopping the spread of the virus throughout the town.

"OMK continues to provide aid to medical facilities in the Nizhniy Novgorod Region. We understand the difficult conditions our doctors and nurses are facing risking their own health daily in their fight against the dangerous infection. We believe that we have a duty to help healthcare professionals overcome this epidemic as fast as possible and go back to normal". emphasized OMK Governance Board Chair Natalya Eremina.
