Toyota South Africa donates vehicles for Covid-19 screening and testing

The provincial government’s fight to curb the spread of Covid-19 has received a much-needed boost as Toyota South Africa donated 10 Toyota Hilux Legend 50 4x4 vehicles as part of a partnership between the private and public sector.

The donated vehicles will be used for Covid-19 contact tracing, screening and testing. The handover of the vehicles was received by KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala, MEC for Health Nomagugu Simalane-Zulu and eThekwini Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda on 20 August.

Mayor Kaunda said the donation symbolises the strong partnership between government and the private sector as Toyota South Africa continues to be a valuable partner in the fight against Covid-19. “We would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to Toyota South Africa for being a good corporate citizen and fulfilling their social responsibility. This donation will enable the Department of Health’s outreach teams to expand the mass community-based screening, testing and contact tracing. This will ensure that we reduce the risk of having unaccounted cases of Covid-19 infections as we strive to revive the economy,” said Mayor Kaunda.

Toyota also announced an investment into the City of R2.5 bn for the first petro-electric car. “This is a clear indication that Toyota is committed to the economic growth and development of the City and the province.  We are also working closely in the implementation of the auto supplier part development at iLovu. This investment will change the City economically for the better and will help reduce the high unemployment rate which has been exacerbated by Covid-19,” Mayor Kaunda added.
