Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) on March 28 lent two units of the Isuzu D-MAX and one Isuzu mu-X to transport healthcare and frontline workers of Binan and Sta. Rosa, Laguna fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Medical City in Sta. Rosa, Laguna will use one Isuzu mu-X and one NLR PUV as the hospital’s service for its frontliners. IPC also reached out to other hospitals to address their mobility problems.

All three Isuzu trucks were sanitized and sterilized before being delivered to the municipality of Binan in accordance to the strict implementation on social distancing and disinfection.

“As the world, including the Philippines, faces an unprecedented health crisis threatening countless lives, our healthcare workers and frontliners—the doctors, nurses, medical researchers, hospital and clinic technicians, and other staff—have risked their own lives to help stop the pandemic, while caring for those who have contracted the disease. And they have been performing such selfless work tirelessly, without letup. With these vehicles, we at IPC hope that our dedicated and enduring heroes in the hospitals would find comfort and safety in their transport. Through our vehicles, we can help them fight the virus more effectively,” said IPC President Hajime Koso as he paid tribute to the frontliners.

Meanwhile, IPC assured that the Isuzu Mobile Medics after-sales service program will still be available for Isuzu vehicles used in essential operations during the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

According to Koso, “the Isuzu Mobile Medic is an onsite emergency servicing will be essential for Isuzu vehicles to continue operating uninterrupted in the government, armed forces, utility companies, logistics, and healthcare sectors.”

IPC’s nationwide network of 45 dealers also offered a 30-day grace period for all Isuzu vehicles with scheduled periodic maintenance service (PMS), while all Isuzu vehicles whose warranty coverage will laps within the ECQ will also be given a 30-day warranty period.
