Vivo has announced to extend a helping hand to the government of Pakistan amid the novel COVID-19 pandemic. The global smartphone brand will be among the first ones to assist the Ministry of National Health Services in Pakistan in sourcing essential supplies for healthcare.
As the first step, vivo has donated 100,000 face masks to the authority to be used in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.
It merits mentioning here that health workers are considered to be the first line of defense in the battle against this epidemic, however, they lack the basic equipment to protect themselves. This donation of masks will surely equip them better to help the patients.
Not only that, but vivo has already taken a slew of initiatives to help curb the spread of COVID-19. Its employees all over Pakistan have been strictly instructed to work from home and all market activities have been canceled for the time being.
Additionally, vivo has extended the warranty of its smartphones as it temporarily closes its service centers across Pakistan.
