Irish legends U2 are donating 10 million euros to help find and buy personal protective equipment (PPE) to help front-line workers.

The jackpot of medical supplies arrived at Dublin Airport this week after collaboration between a number of private and public companies.

Eleven days ago, the Irish aircraft rental company Avolon donated one of its planes to Director of health services.

On Tuesday, he delivered the large shipment, including 40 fans.

Emmet Moloney of Avolon told RTE: “This entire project was designed and executed in just ten days.” We want to support remarkable people on the front lines of our health services.

“Avolon is an Irish company.” We are proud and privileged to play our role in this area. “

Dr. Niall Mulvihill, a consultant cardiologist, added: “We are talking about 40 respirators, about 60,000 glasses, 20,000 face masks – which are the type of masks required in intensive care – also over a million disposable gloves , so it’s a significant amount of material. ”

“To the best of our knowledge, the quality has been guaranteed, but we will obviously have to check it on arrival.”
