Municipal hospital “St. Ivan Rilski” in Gorna Oryahovitsa used the money collected in its donation account and ordered ventilators for the Reanimation Unit, where patients with COVID-19 will be treated.

Yesterday, a local company in the food industry sector donated 100 000 BGN to the hospital.

With the means raised with the first call, totalling 36 000 BGN, the second largest municipal hospital in the country ordered a respirator that is expected to be delivered by the end of the week.

Gorna Oryahovitsa Hospital has 5 beds for reanimation and only two ventilators. The newly donated 100 000 BGN can be used for the needs of the hospital upon their discretion and will be used for buying personal protection equipment for the medical staff and technical equipment.

The hospital received also 5000 litres ethanol.
