ST John Ambulance (SJA) will be providing ambulance services and other technical assistance in East New Britain (ENB) over the positive Covid-19 case reported there, chief executive officer Matthew Cannon says.
He told The National that SJA would be assisting the ENB health authority and had already sent emergency cargo to the province. Cannon posted on Facebook yesterday that a SJA team had been sent to East New Britain with officers from the police and Health Department, with technical support from Unicef and World Health Organisation.
“Our team assisted with emergency cargo, including supplies of 15L liquid hand soap, P2 masks, 2,500 surgical masks, gloves (200 pcs), LifePak defibrillator/monitors, IV resuscitation medicine kits, advanced airway kits, oxygen resuscitation kits, paediatric resuscitation kits, trauma kits, intensive care medications, case sheets, and additional uniforms and food supplies,” he said.
Cannon said SJA would continue to provide assistance where necessary.
“We are making arrangements to mobilise two ambulances from Port Moresby in the coming days,” he said.
