Oxygen produced at the enterprise is used, in particular, for the treatment of patients with COVID-19

Since the beginning of September 2022, Zaporizhstal has supplied almost 35 tons of medical oxygen to the Zaporizhia and Dnipropetrovsk regions. Metinvest.Media’s press release reports about it.

The oxygen produced at the enterprise is used to treat patients with COVID-19 and other oxygen-dependent patients.

Metinvest continues to supply medical oxygen to Ukrainian hospitals, even in wartime conditions, because with the onset of autumn and the increasing risk of the viral infections’ spread, this is an urgent issue.

As GMK Center reported earlier, in six months of 2022, as part of Metinvest’s Steel Front, Ukrainian hospitals received 1.072 tons of oxygen.

Also the Metinvest group, with the support of Ingulets mining, purchased and installed two Malcomson stationary generators with a capacity of 165 kW and 265 kW for UAH 3 million in Kryvyi Rih Hospital №17. As part of cooperation with the company, the hospital is carrying out capital repairs of wards and departments, purchasing modern medical equipment, and improving the material and technical base.

As GMK Center wrote before, Metinvest handed over 20 ambulances for military medics. The total cost of the cars, together with the cost of repairs and delivery to Ukraine, amounted to €300,000.
