The situation in Berlin's doctors’ surgery is becoming increasingly acute due to the lack of important protective clothing and disinfectants. Some practices have already had to close for this reason. The HZB has therefore decided to provide quick help and is donating 65 boxes of protective clothing that are normally used for work in the laboratories and clean rooms. The boxes were handed over to the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Berlin on 27.03.2020.

"Protective clothing and disinfectants are desperately needed in the medical practices. This is the moment when we as HZB can help unbureaucratically. That is why I am pleased that so many laboratory managers and OE managers have responded to our request and collected protective equipment that is currently not needed," says Thomas Frederking, Commercial Director, and thanks everyone involved for their great willingness to help.

A large number of boxes were collected - both from the stocks at the Wannsee and Adlershof sites. They mainly contain breathing masks, disposable gloves, overalls and disinfectants. The HZB's transport service will personally hand over the donation to the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Berlin today. From there, the protective equipment will be distributed to the doctors in Berlin.
