新华社亚的斯亚贝巴10月14日电埃塞俄比亚Tebita救护车院前急救服务公司的创始人和所有者Kibret Abebe在新冠肺炎疫情中看到了机遇,正在寻求扩大公司业务。


Tebita救护车医院前急救医疗服务是一家社会企业,十多年前在东非国家开发了第一个私人救护车服务。


“在我看来,COVID-19是一个非常好的机会。这可能会影响我们的一些商业活动,但我们希望在不久的将来,事情会有所开放,在COVID-19出现的情况下,甚至我们的组织也会成长起来,因为我们正在把威胁转化为机会,”阿贝贝告诉新华社。


阿贝贝一直在抗击新冠肺炎大流行方面发挥自己的作用,他与埃塞俄比亚政府合作,使其公司最先进的救护车在抗击新冠肺炎的战斗中提供服务。


阿贝贝说:“在过去的四个月里,我们与政府密切合作,挽救了很多生命,所以我们以此为跳板,建立了一种具体的公私伙伴关系。”


阿贝贝说,他仍然计划开设一个现代创伤医疗中心和空中急救服务,以应对埃塞俄比亚目前面临的现代健康挑战。


在该公司工作的紧急医疗技术员伊尔哈姆•达拉罗(Ilham Dararo)说,他们现在准备更充分了,知道如何在抗击COVID-19方面发挥更大的作用。


达拉罗说,她计划利用自己成功的抗covid -19经验,向公众传授预防这一流行病的安全措施。


达拉罗在接受新华社采访时表示:“我在想,也许我们可以扩大这项服务,教其他人不仅仅是在新冠肺炎方面,还应该在急救和其他紧急情况下做些什么。”


截至周三上午,埃塞俄比亚已确诊85,718例新冠肺炎病例和1,305例新冠肺炎相关死亡病例。3月13日,这个东非国家确认了首例COVID-19病例。

ADDIS ABABA, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- Kibret Abebe, founder and owner of Tebita Ambulance Pre-Hospital Emergency Medical Service in Ethiopia, is seeking to expand his company's business as he sees an opportunity amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tebita Ambulance Pre-Hospital Emergency Medical Service is a social enterprise that developed the first private ambulance service in the East African nation more than a decade ago.

"In my opinion, COVID-19 is a very good opportunity. It may compromise some of our business activity, but we're hoping that in the near future things will be opened up and in the presence of COVID-19, even our organization may grow because we're turning threat to opportunity," Abebe told Xinhua.

Abebe has been playing his part in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic by partnering with the Ethiopian government to make available the services of his firm's state-of-the-art ambulances in the anti-COVID-19 fight.

"For the last four months, we're very closely working with the government saving a lot of lives, so we're using this as a springboard to have a sort of concrete private-public partnership," Abebe said.

Abebe says he still has plans to open up a modern trauma medical center and air ambulance services to deal with the modern health challenges present in Ethiopia.

Ilham Dararo, an Emergency Medical Technician working at the company, says they are now more prepared and know how to do more regarding their role in fighting against COVID-19.

Dararo says she has plans to use her successful anti-COVID-19 experience to teach the general public on safety measures against the pandemic.

"I'm thinking maybe we can expand this service and teach other people what to do not just in regards to COVID-19, but also in first aid and other emergency situations," Dararo told Xinhua.

Ethiopia has as of Wednesday morning confirmed 85,718 COVID-19 cases and 1,305 COVID-19 related deaths. The East African country confirmed its first case of COVID-19 on March 13.
