Like other hospitals, UCSF is struggling to keep up with the demand from COVID-19
Around the world, COVID-19 is leaving hospitals overwhelmed and unable to cope up with the influx of patients coming in. In the US alone, there are 561,103 cases and a whopping 22,106 deaths. Hospitals are being swamped with patients and thus are running out of essential supplies needed to help patients, money needed to pay healthcare workers, etc. In order to ensure that our world can stay safe and healthy during this crisis, we need to support hospitals in their battles against COVID-19.
Donations can help UCSF get the supplies they need to aid patients, staff, and researchers
Due to the overwhelming number of cases, UCSF, like other medical facilities, are welcoming donations to help support patients and staff, and also researchers working actively on COVID. UCSF is also working with other teams across the Bay Area to help treat patients, as well as teams across UCSF monitor and respond to evolving situations. UCSF has created a separate "COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response Fund" donation page, the donations from which will be catered to only COVID relief measures.
By donating just $10, you can help support uninsured patients or develop tools to treat the disease
As per UCSF's website, the funds will be used to expand diagnostic and testing capacity. It will also be used to secure UCSF's ability to cover extended staff time and benefits for health care providers working directly on the crisis. Furthermore, the fund will be addressing the expenses of exposed patients who are not covered by insurance. It will also be used to train frontliners and develop tools to treat COVID-19 and diagnose the disease.
