Boeing transport PPE to South Carolina on three Dreamlifters as part of the COVID-19 recovery efforts across the State. The airlift efforts include 150,000 protective eye goggles and face shields.
The company partnered with Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in getting the PPE to the frontline health care professionals in the MUSC Health system to assist with COVID-19 community testing and outreach efforts.
“Today’s delivery puts essential personal protective equipment in the hands of South Carolina’s frontline health care professionals and helps MUSC further support the community during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Boeing President and CEO Dave Calhoun. “I am incredibly proud of our Boeing team members throughout the world for their work to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and thankful for our government and industry partners that have joined us in the pandemic response.”
“On behalf of our entire MUSC family, I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Boeing team for helping to make today’s critical PPE shipment possible,” said MUSC President, David J. Cole, M.D., FACS. “These goggles and face shields will allow us to continue to expand our ability to test and monitor for COVID-19 as businesses and communities start to move forward. Increasing access to testing in the areas of greatest need throughout our state is an essential part of this work. We must continue to protect our most vulnerable populations. Boeing and MUSC have a longstanding partnership, and today’s delivery is yet another example of two great South Carolina institutions coming together in support of our local community.”
