The work of Inditex to stop the Coronavirus pandemic is being practically incalculable. From the first moment, the company led by Amancio Ortega has been committed to the cause and has put all the means at its disposal – at the logistical and economic level – to help the Spanish Government.
It is estimated that between donations from Inditex and the Amancio Ortega Foundation, Zara’s empire has already donated more than 80 million against the Covid-19 and has had details with its staff of employees such as offering children’s masks to protect them on their first outing on the street. Likewise, the Hospital Complex of A Coruña already has thousands of gowns made by Inditex.
Today’s news confirms that Inditex transports 585 million masks free of charge from China to Spain that the Ministry of Health has purchased, according to Redacción Médica. In addition to this large quantity of masks, the Galician company has agreed to send more medical material in the form of 970 respirators, 11 million protective gloves, 550,000 goggles y 2.29 million disposable monkeys.
As we all know by now, there are several models of masks that fulfill different functions. In this case, Inditex distributes 26.8 million FFP2 masks, 53 million surgical masks, 488 million respiratory protection masks and 18 million KN95 masks.
In this way, Inditex continues to take steps forward as a company committed to stopping the Covid-19. Finally, Amancio Ortega’s company is in the process of preparing the reopening of part of its stores for next 25 May.
