Fanshawe College donates protective equipment to London, Ont. medical community

As efforts continue to slow the rate of contagion by the novel coronavirus, Ontario’s Fanshawe College is donating all of their personal protective equipment to family doctors, nurse practitioners, and administrators in the London area.

They’re answering a call from the London Middlesex Primary Care Alliance, looking for safety equipment for primary caregivers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to a shortage of personal protective equipment, family doctors have not been able to see patients in person.

Health officials say the equipment is essential to prevent transmission of COVID-19 and keep both health care workers and patients safe.

“During this time of social distancing, the Fanshawe community has come together to support our family physicians,” says Pam McLaughlin, dean of the faculty of health, community studies and public safety.
