In support of the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) effort to
curb the COVID-19 pandemic, Celcom Axiata Berhad (Celcom) had recently extended additional connectivity assistance for on-ground medical staff throughout hospitals managing COVID-19 cases nationwide.
Celcom handed over 200 dedicated postpaid SIM cards, to assist MOH to reach out to COVID-19 Patient(s) Under Investigation (PUI) and potential contacts. The SIM cards provide free unlimited calls and 20GB data for each line, enabling speedier communication via voice call
and also other channels such as SMS and Whatsapp.
Celcom also extended its support to the Sungai Buloh Hospital, one of the nation’s critical hospital in curbing the Covid-19 pandemic. The hospital received 40 mobile devices and phone lines, together with the deployment of Celcom’s Cellular on Wheels’, a transportable network infrastructure booster, to ensure continuous connectivity within the hospital vicinity.
Idham Nawawi, Chief Executive Officer of Celcom Axiata Berhad said “Celcom values and strongly supports the relentless efforts by MOH and medical frontliners in curbing the Covid-19 global pandemic.
“As the nation’s dedicated medical frontliners are utilising all resources including manpower and technical infrastructures, our support aims to ease their efforts and extend their communication avenue further, which is also crucial in curbing and flattening the curve of COVID-19 amongst
Malaysians,” Idham added.
