Prudential provides an extra of 200,000 quota to a total offering of 500,000 for the “Free COVID-19 Protection” to Hong Kong residents following overwhelming market response
(1 April 2020, Hong Kong) Since Prudential Hong Kong Limited (“Prudential”) announced an enhanced effort to support the community by providing Free COVID-19 Protection for 300,000 Hong Kong residents two days ago, the market response has been overwhelming. In line with its “We DO health” spirit, the company is further demonstrating its corporate citizenship by offering an additional quota of 200,000 to cater to more Hong Kong residents and help fight the virus together with them.
Derek Yung, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential said, “The quota for the free COVID-19 protection was almost fully taken up in just 48 hours after it was launched. The overwhelming market response underpins the urgent demand for health protection by Hong Kong residents. Prudential sees it as its responsibility to do what it can for the community during this time of uncertainty and challenge. We are therefore pleased to be offering the free COVID-19 protection to 200,000 more Hong Kong residents. Standing by every citizen through each challenge, we hope to provide peace of mind to our people as we battle the epidemic together.”
