Two Rotary clubs raised US$30,000 for Chanthaburi’s King Prajadhipok Memorial Hospital to purchase ventilators during the coronavirus pandemic.
Rotary International District 3340 Gov.

Ventilators have emerged as the most-crucial – and scarce – pieces of hospital equipment during the pandemic, as they’re imperative for patients suffering from Covid-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
Prapokklao Hospital is Chanthaburi Province’s main center for Covid-19 treatment. While the province hasn’t had a confirmed case of the virus in weeks, the hospital is preparing in case a second wave of the disease sweeps Thailand once the economy reopens.
