Ferrari raises one million Euro for Italy’s healthcare system in COVID-19 fight
Ferrari has launched a fundraiser to support the health system of the province of Modena (Italy) and will be matching all of the donations made by its clients.
In a matter of days, the fundraiser has already reached the million Euro mark, and it will continue over the coming weeks.
Initial funds have immediately been made available to Modena, birthplace of Enzo Ferrari himself. The Azienda Unità Sanitaria Locale (AUSL), the local health care unit of the Italian National Health Service, will use them to treat patients affected by Covid-19 and to purchase medical aids and equipment to counteract the infection.
Part of the funding will be employed in the expansion of Telemedicine, which allows for remote monitoring of citizens with potential Covid-19 symptoms through devices connected to smartphones or tablets via Bluetooth.
