SHANGHAI, China, June 10 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Linkwell Corporation (Linkwell) (OTC Bulletin Board: LWLL), a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of healthcare related disinfectants in China, announced today that Mr. Xuelian Bian, Linkwell's Chairman and CEO and also Vice President of the Shanghai Disinfection Industry Association, personally led disinfection epidemic prevention teams into some of the worst disaster areas of Sichuan earthquake zone. This development enlarges Linkwell's operations, in support of China's earthquake relief efforts, as reported on May 23, 2008.
Mr. Bian led disinfection epidemic prevention teams from Linkwell's subsidiary, Shanghai LiKang Disinfectant Hi-Tech Co., Ltd. (LiKang Disinfectant) to Dujiangyan City, only 12 miles from the earthquake's epicenter at Wenchuan Yingxiu. Dujiangyan City vice mayor, Mr. Yan, who is in charge of culture, education and health for earthquake refugees, expressed his sincere appreciation to Mr. Bian for Linkwell's support.
The disinfection epidemic prevention team participants are all outstanding employees of the LiKang Disinfectant, including Mr. Wensheng Sun, vice president in charge of production and research, Mr. Shifang Yu, vice president in charge of marketing and Mr. Arthur Huang, COO of Linkwell Corporation. Mr. Wensheng Sun is also the director of regulation department, Shanghai Disinfection Industry Association and has more than 10 years of disinfection business experience. Mr. Shifang Yu previously served as chief of the disinfection office of Shanghai Jinshan District Center for Disease Control (CDC), and has more than 30 years of pesticides and disinfection experience. Mr. Shifang Yu is the director of disinfection department, the China Pest Infestation Control and Sanitation Association. Mr. Arthur Huang is the disinfection expert of the China Pest Infestation Control and Sanitation Association.
At the beginning of this monumental endeavor, Mr. Bian said, ''We are the first professional disinfection team from Shanghai. According to my previous experience at the Department of Epidemic Study at the Second Military Medical University, we taught that the most important operations during a post-earthquake period are disinfection and quarantine, which best controls infection and prevents the spread of potential epidemics. With our vast experience in professional disinfection, our company will contribute to preventing epidemics in the disaster and surrounding areas and help rebuild the damaged medical disinfection and quarantine systems.''
Besides relief disinfection actions, the LiKang Disinfection team will establish professional disinfection training classes on location, to create local professional disinfectant teams. Instruction will include analyzing existing and potential disaster situations and providing appropriate disinfectant solutions. The first training will be held in Dujiangyan and many trainings will be carried through in the several months. On hospital infection control, LiKang will continue to apply their technical and professional expertise in the disaster area.
