The world's largest beer group from Belgium, AB InBev, which produces 500 famous beers such as Budweiser, Beck's, Hoegaarden, and Corona, has taken meaningful action to donate drinking water to COVID-19 isolation centres where the infection rate is high, to further the fight against the pandemic.

On May 13, AB Inbev co-operated with the Vietnam Red Cross to hold an donation ceremony of 250,000 cans of mineral water that AB InBev produced exclusively for quarantine zones in Vietnam. With the COVID-19 epidemic pressing on the world, though Vietnam has proved a model in containing the disease, the risk of infection is still there and in response to the prime minister's call to "fight against the epidemic", AB InBev co-operated with relevant departments to understand the needs of isolation centres.
Understanding the need for clean, safe food and beverages in these areas, AB InBev has used its unique technology and international quality product line for producing famous beer brands Budweiser and Beck's to create pure water cans and give them to patients in isolation areas.
