Manchester United has donated treatment equipment, food and gifts to local treatment centers, with Alex Ferguson leading the NHS’s appreciation and response to the coronavirus epidemic.
The Premier League Club Foundation has provided protective equipment, other medical supplies and more than 3,500 United Gifts to employees of the NHS Foundation Trust in Salford and Manchester.
United also said they would agree to allow the NHS to use the facilities at Old Trafford and the 16 cars in their base, while 30,000 items contained in the stadium were shipped to food and beverage food banks, hospitals and charities.
Former United manager Alex Ferguson, who underwent emergency surgery after suffering a brain hemorrhage two years ago, expressed appreciation for healthcare.
“I am glad we are now recognizing the importance of our NHS – as I experienced it two years ago before saving my life,” Ferguson said on the United States official website.
“The response to this epidemic has been great and made me proud of the way the club and the British people have rallied around to help. It’s been good.”

These words were echoed by Ole Gunnar Salsquier, Ferguson’s successor and current resignant for United jobs.
“NHS staff and volunteers battling the virus are risking themselves to protect everyone and do something truly amazing,” Soulskazar added.
“They want to thank and thank everyone for their work and their efforts every day.”
On Wednesday, Premier League players announced a fundraiser to assist with healthcare, with United captain Harry Maguire combining the effort from Soulskazar’s squad.
The English international said, “Our thoughts are with all players who have been infected with this deadly virus.”
“It was heartening to see the nation come together to express their gratitude to the NHS and other critics.”
