Tuesday, April 7, 2020.- The facilities of the former Ciudad de la Luz complex, in Alicante, have become a logistics center for the supply of medical equipment in front of the COVID-19, with the arrival for the first time this Tuesday of a shipment of health emergency products such as masks, gloves, glasses and personal protective equipment (PPE), among other items.
As the President of the Valencian Generalitat, Ximo Puig, recently announced, the old sets of Ciudad de la Luz constitute an ideal space for storing the necessary medical equipment. The Department of Innovation and Digital Society, led by Carolina Pascual, is committed to finding and managing projects that facilitate the supply of products and services in the current exceptional situation.
Within this framework, with the help of the Thematic Projects Society of the Valencian Community (SPTCV), the necessary procedures have been carried out to obtain the authorization of the European Commission to endow these facilities with specific use as a logistics supply center for the entire Province.
The forest firefighters of the Generalitat Valenciana participate in this initiative, who will be in charge of distributing the products among the security forces and bodies, nursing homes, care centers for people in situations of dependency and social vulnerability in the province of Alicante.
