Many campaigns have been launched to raise funds to buy protective equipment for medical staff to help tackle Covid-19 and save lives. "Large hospitals like King Chulalongkorn Memorial, Ramathibodi and Chakrinarubodin Medical Institute need at least 100 N95 masks each day," he said. Since his campaign kicked off on Monday, he has received pledges for 1,700 N95 masks. Earlier this week, the Ramathibodi Foundation, Siriraj Foundation and Rajavithi Hospital each called for donations for the purchase of medical equipment and supplies, especially ventilators and personal protective equipment (PPE). It is scheduled to send another 800 PPE suits to hospitals in Bangkok, Chon Buri and Chiang Mai.
