Irish rock band U2 is contributing €10 million for the sourcing and purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supports to help combat Covid-19 in Ireland, and support frontline healthcare workers.
The first part of the shipment arrived yesterday.
The large consignment of medical supplies arrived at Dublin Airport after a collaboration between a number of private and public companies.
Eleven days ago, Irish aircraft leasing company Avolon offered one of its planes to the Health Service Executive. Yesterday, it delivered the large cargo, including 40 ventilators.
