THE Villar Group on Monday said it will install disinfection tents in several hospitals in the frontlines of battling the coronavirus disease in Metro Manila.

In a statement, the Villar Group said the disinfecting apparatus has been installed at the Rizal Medical Center in Pasig City. This can be used by health workers, staff and hospital visitors.

“The disinfecting apparatus has a sensor prompting to automatically spray disinfecting mists when people enter the tunnel,” the group said.

Similar disinfecting apparatus will be installed in the Lung Center of the Philippines, Philippine Heart Center, and Quirino Medical Center in Quezon City, as well as the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) in Muntinlupa City and Las Piñas General Hospital in Las Piñas City.

Disinfection tents will also be donated and put up in San Lazaro Hospital and Sta. Ana Hospital in Manila, and Don Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial in Caloocan City.

Property companies under the Villar Group, led by tycoon Manuel B. Villar, include Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc., Starmalls, Inc., and Golden Bria Holdings, Inc.
