Coronavirus Latest Updates: As Vaccine Rolls Out, Geeplus Continues to Aid in Fight Against COVID-19
Latest Numbers, Recommendations and More
Beckenham, UK – As countries throughout the world revert to various stages of lockdown and continue to battle the latest resurgence of Covid-19 amidst the release of a number of new vaccines, Geeplus’ expanded production personnel have continued to work around the clock to support the world’s top ventilator manufacturers with our advanced actuation devices — most notably, the VM38 voice coil motor.
The VM38 is an extremely advanced, precise and highly controllable voice coil actuator, that has aided Geeplus in becoming the world’s leading supplier of actuators in medical ventilator applications. Learn more in this brief video.
Demand Still High for Precision Actuators
With cases of COVID-19 continuing to rise (even as vaccines are rolled out in various countries) and an increasing number of governing bodies continuing to cancel or postpone major events and gatherings as a result, the demand for advanced medical ventilators continues to be high. Geeplus has dealt with a demand that has more than quadrupled in 2020, which has been a major challenge. We’ve vastly expanded our production team, as well as production space, and we’ve been literally working around the clock to keep up with the demand for these crucial parts.
Origins of COVID-19
At the very end of 2019, WHO was alerted to several cases of pneumonia in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. This virus displayed qualities that were unique and did not match any other known virus, raising alarm throughout the medical community.
Chinese authorities confirmed the following week that they had identified the new virus, known as the Coronavirus, a family of viruses that include the common cold, along with viruses such as SARS and MERS. The new virus was temporarily named “2019-nCoV” (now COVID-19)
The latest statistics on the virus show over 82 Million cases across more than 218 countries and territories worldwide, with over 1.8 Million deaths as a result of the virus. On the other hand, well over 58 Million have recovered from COVID-19.
Of the over 22,168,000 current documented active cases in the world right now, 99.5% (22,062,000) of cases are mild, and not life-threatening (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries).
How To Combat the Spread of COVID-19
Follow these recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) to help to keep yourself and others safe.
Wash your hands frequently: Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
Maintain social distancing: Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth: Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene: This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Seek medical care early if you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
