In the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Yamaha Thailand (Yamaha Motor Company Limited) has joined in the effort by donating 100 motorcycles to the country’s medical frontliners and personnel. These bikes were donated to Mr. Anutin Charnwirakul, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health, to be distributed throughout its public healthcare system within 77 provinces of Thailand.
A range of Yamaha motorcycle models consisting of Fino, Freco, Aerox 155, and Finn worth around six million baht will assist the Ministry of Public Health to be more agile and efficient in their effort to curb the COVID-19 pandemic with the country. As of today, there are over 2,400 reported cases of infection with 32 deaths in Thailand, roughly half the numbers we’re facing here in Malaysia.
According to Mr Phongsathorn Euamongkolchai, Yamaha Motor Company Limited Executive Vice President, “Thai Yamaha Motor Company Limited would like to be a part of providing support to these ‘Gladiators’ medical personnel at the forefront to help prevent and conquer the virus, COVID-19. We are ready to be side by side with the Thai people to overcome the epidemic crisis this time.”
These bikes will be used to not only educate the Thai people regarding COVID-19, but also other medical services like delivering medicines and supplies as well as coordinating hospitals and other agencies easily and more efficiently. Kudos, Yamaha Thailand!
