He mentioned that the three hospitals were Pariaman Regional Public Hospital and Sadikin Regional Public Hospital located in the City of Pariaman and Padang Pariaman Regional Public Hospital located in Enam Lingkung Subdistrict, Padang Pariaman Regency.
He conveyed that the making of the PPE will continue and this is care action of artists from both regions.
"In addition to the Hazmat suits, we also make face shields and we have submitted them to the Lubuk Alung Health Center," he said.
He conveyed that the PPE-making funds came from local businessmen who were concerned with medical personnel to face the COVID-19 outbreak.
While the PKK mothers are volunteers who want to take the time to sew hazmat suits because they care about the development of the outbreak.
"We still have material to sew, but we need volunteers to sew it," he said.
He invited entrepreneurs to set aside money to buy PPE, especially for medical personnel and buy disinfectants to spray residents' homes.
