Ltd., by the Founder & CEO of the Company, Khun Rewat Jindaphon. The masks are to be used in the Field Hospital of Khon Kaen University for patients caring.

Khun Rewat Jindaphon, Founder & CEO of Miss Lily MD Supplies, Co. Ltd., said that due to the third Covid-19 pandemic, the number of people contracting the disease increased very fast until Khon Kaen University has to set up the Field Hospital in order to help the people contracting the disease. Miss Lily MD Supplies, Co. Ltd. sees the intention of Khon Kaen University and so wanted to help. The Company manufactures Miss Lily disposable face masks with high quality and standard for safe use, guaranteed from the US standard certification. The donation this time was 20,000 pieces, and the Company believed would be useful for officers and the health professionals working with the patients, for the mask would protect them against infection.

Assoc. Prof. Charnchai Panthongviriyakul, M.D., President of Khon Kaen University thanked the Company and said, “Face mask is an important tool in protection both for the patients and for those who are not patients in order to decrease the spread of the disease. Khun Rewat Jindaphon is an honorable committee member of the Faculty of Medicine and is our consultant in many matters. At the time Covid-19 began to spread, we discussed this matter together. We anticipated that there was going to be shortage of face masks. After this, Khun Rewat ordered a machine from abroad to manufacture face masks. The machine capacity is producing hundreds of thousands pieces per day. Most of all, Miss Lily face masks are of high quality. With the use of good material inside the mask and by considering the size and electric charge, the screening efficiency is 99.9 %. We must thank Khun Rewat Jindaphon for the donation of quality masks today to Khon Kaen University.”

KKU President Assoc. Prof. Charnchai added, “Khon Kaen University has prepared for the readiness in hardware and medical supplies in order to accommodate the situation. Khon Kaen University is still open for external assistance, from whoever has the intention to support us by donating masks, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) or other devices and tools, including even drinking water and electric fans, which have also been given by many people. We are really grateful to them all.”
