In wake of the first coronavirus death in his hometown of Bihac, Bosnia, Dzanan Musa tells NetsDaily he’s buying medical supplies for the Cantonal Hospital in the city of 56,000.

Musa spoke about the impetus for buying the supplies, the difficulty of finding the right equipment, and reached out for contributions.

“My hometown of Bihac is desperate to get things right now,” he told NetsDaily, noting delivery could take two weeks or longer. “The equipment was ordered according to the instructions of the management of the Cantonal Hospital in Bihac. The equipment is currently in high demand and almost impossible to find but we were lucky enough to reach a supplier through a friend. I would appeal to anyone but who is able to get involved in helping.”

Dzennis Musa, Dzanan’s Brooklyn-based brother, said the medical supplies are devices needed to help those already infected.

“Our hospital needed devices to follow the person who is already infected so we find all they need and Dzanan will buy it as soon as possible,” Dzennis Musa told NetsDaily.

“We want just to include everyone else to support their communities,” Dzennis Musa told NetsDaily.

At the time of this report, Bihac has the only confirmed coronavirus death in the country.

Musa is one of three international players on the Nets. The other two are Rodions Kurucs and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.
