As the coronavirus continues spreading, Energy companies worldwide are helping to contain the infection.

Central and Eastern Europe leading oil group MOL is suppling Hungarian hospitals with disinfectants. Also, major Polish oil refiner and petrol retailer PKN Orlen is providing a total of 6 million Poland złoty (1.3 million euros) for the purchase of medical equipment necessary for diagnostics and saving the life and health of infected people. 

Péter Ratatics, MOL Hungary Chief Operating Officer, announced that the company will start the production of a chemical that is equally suitable for disinfecting surfaces and human skin, manufacturing 50,000 litres per week. He added that the chemical will first be distributed among hospitals, priority public institutions and large-scale users, while according to plans, in two weeks’ time, the product will also be made available in retail outlets.

“We are a socially responsible company,” said  Daniel Obajtek, President of the Management Board of PKN ORLEN. “We focus our activities on increasing the security of Poles. That is why we direct our help where it is most needed now. Hospitals are on the front line and must be well equipped to successfully fight the coronavirus epidemic.”
