CHCC Chief Executive Officer Esther L. Muna thanked SFD Inc. CEO Ha-Young Shin for the donations. She said these “[will be] extremely helpful for our staff as they respond to Covid-19 patients.” 

Kim said his company “understands the unprecedented challenges that the people of the CNMI are facing as Covid-19 threatens the islands. We want to show our support for the health workers so that we can look forward in the near future to safely reopening these beautiful islands and all of us can return to our vibrant daily lives.”

As of Monday, CHCC had recorded no new cases of Covid-19. The total of number of confirmed Covid-19 cases remained at 14, of which there were two deaths and 12 recoveries.
