Since the UK attempts to get equipment to manage the coronavirus pandemic, health authorities have obtained two unique contributions: one ventilator in the celebrated physicist Stephen Hawking’s household, and 2 from 330 Chinese alumni of British universities.
After documenting over 17,000 deaths in hospitals — many more happened in homes and care homes — that the UK is among the worst affected nations in Europe, with over 1.2 lakh instances, leaving it unable to put in place the infrastructure and employees desired.
Hawking’s daughter Lucy explained: “Our dad received brilliant, committed, and compassionate healthcare from the Royal Papworth and Addenbrooke’s hospitals in Cambridge. As a trained patient, Royal Papworth was incredibly important for my dad and helped him during some rather hard times”.
“We realized it would be at the forefront of this COVID-19 outbreak and touch base with a number of our older friends there to inquire if we can help,” she added.
The 330 Chinese scholars of UK universities created private donations of 38,000 to purchase 2 ventilators for the National Health Service. The very important gear was hauled on a trip from Shanghai to London.
The former students were a part of this administration’s Chevening program that enables future international leaders to research in the united kingdom.
In an open letter, the alumni stated from China: “We need to demonstrate our support and attention by standing with British people in battling the pandemic. We’ve got good faith and want a complete and speedy achievement in our combined effort”.
