They join the initiative Coronavirus response of the Hospital Clínic
The Alcantara brothers, Thiago and Rafinha, and Thiago’s wife, Júlia Vigas, through the ALCANTARA FAMILY FOUNDATION, have wanted to contribute to the social emergency caused by Covid-19 by collaborating with the Coronavirus Response initiative in favor of the needs of the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona. In addition, given this emergency situation, they want to lead an appeal campaign among their millions of followers and also that of the sensitivity of all people to meet the challenge set for this action. For this reason, Thiago Alcantara, a player for FC Bayern Munich and the Spanish National Team, has given an interview on Jordi Basté’s “El món” program on RAC1 to explain this initiative in detail.
The current pandemic is a health challenge in which we work with maximum coordination and care efficiency, but it is also necessary to face the disease from the scientific point of view.
The Hospital Clínic has launched the Coronavirus Response project whose objective is to respond with the utmost urgency to the current situation of the Covid-19 pandemic in two areas: on the one hand, to improve care for patients and their families. The current situation requires the continuous replacement of basic equipment for care and infection prevention for health personnel and patients.
On the other, find a cure and new treatments for the disease. In this area, the Hospital Clínic promotes about 15 research projects related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease it causes, Covid-19. These projects range from the development of treatments or vaccines to the discovery of biomarkers that predict the evolution of those infected.
This is an exceptional situation to which the Alcantara Family Foundation has reacted by making a general call to achieve this challenge, surely the first of many other efforts that society must carry out, united and in solidarity.
As a result of the Hospital Clínic’s commitment to transparency, which will allocate the funds received to meet the needs and priorities identified by the extreme reality at the moment, the entity will promptly inform its donors about the specific destination of the resources, what they will be used for. have been applied and what have been the results obtained.
