Premium brake manufacturer, Brembo, has donated a huge sum of money to assist the Italian healthcare services in their effort to curb the widespread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. How much? €1 million big ones, which is slightly over RM4.7 million.
Based in Bergamo, Italy, Brembo knows all too well the effects of COVID-19 pandemic that has put a halt on a lot of things as well as causing thousands of deaths not just in Italy, but all over the world. To date, Italy is still one of the worst countries to suffer at the fate of pandemic with over 180,000 infected cases and just north of 25,000 deaths (third-worst country after USA and Spain).
The €1 million donation will be used to assist three different medical facilities across Italy located in the worst-hit regions of Italy. They will also use the funds for clinical and pharmacological research to combat this deadly pandemic.
According to Alberto Bombassei, President of Brembo, “After an initial donation to a nursing home at the Bergamo hospital, we needed to do our own research to find a drug for COVID-19 as soon as possible, Research is also the art in which we see ourselves as a company. We believe that it is the payment method to find a future solution to this important situation.”
