Two lung ventilators, two intensive care monitors, four defibrillator monitors, a digital ultrasound, and other resuscitation equipment from the Medical Center at the Mugello Circuit were recently sent to hospitals in Tuscany to help contrast the Covid-19 emergency.

Specifically, an automatic respirator with monitor and ultrasound machine was sent to the Mugello Hospital in Borgo San Lorenzo for its intensive care unit. The equipment for a second resuscitation bed along with four defibrillators were, instead, sent to the Careggi hospital in Florence.

"We immediately made our intentions known to the mayor of Scarperia and San Piero, Federico Ignesti," the CEO of the circuit, Paolo Poli, commented. "In difficult times such as these, everyone's efforts must focus on the sole objective of giving an immediate response to this emergency. The resuscitation equipment from the medical center at the circuit is a small gesture in support of the daily contribution of professionalism the operators in the healthcare system, those who safeguard our health, are giving."

"I would like to thank Paolo Poli from the Mugello Circuit," the Mayor of the City of Florence, Dario Nardella, stated, "for having allocated instruments from the circuit's Health Center to our hospitals, in order to help contrast the spread of the Coronavirus. We are called to look within and beyond ourselves these days, without underestimating what is happening, and the possibilities we have to help, like the circuit is doing. It's an example that I hope can further fuel the only possible race at this moment, which is that of responsibility, sharing, and solidarity."

"An important gesture of sharing and attention," the mayor of Scarperia and San Piero, Federico Ignesti, commented, "of which I informed the President of the Region, Enrico Rossi, who instructed me to thank the Ferrari racetrack and its Ad Poli, and the same gratitude comes for the two hospitals. I hope that this solidarity will continue to be tangibly practiced in such a complex moment for our country."
