Guardian Brunei contributed a total of 10,000 medical face masks to the Ministry of Health (MoH) yesterday as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) and to assist the Government of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam to manage the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar received the donation from Head of Business of Guardian Brunei Jennifer Yang.

The contribution was part of Guardian Brunei’s effort to ensure that frontliners have the best equipment. The donated supplies are certified medical masks equipped with a bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) of over 99 per cent and are guaranteed by European CE Marking with certificate DIN EN 14683.

With concerns growing over the new cases cropping up in Brunei, Guardian reminded the public to remain vigilant and stand together during the pandemic. Wearing a mask when possible can help curb the spread of the virus, especially through asymptomatic transmissions.

Due to the ongoing repercussions of the pandemic, Guardian will soon roll out an online shopping platform to promote social distancing measures.

The platform will provide access to Guardian’s shopping database including Malaysia, allowing cross-border shopping for those in Brunei. Guardian will announce the launch at a later date.
