The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has drawn fresh attention from all walks of life in China’s 2020 Spring Festival holiday.

ZTE has promptly established an emergency working group for the new pneumonia on January 21st, and has made systematic arrangements in the areas of supply chain, communication guarantee, field service, and employee health and safety.

Externally, ZTE is fully supporting operators to construct and secure 5G networks in Wuhan, Huanggang, Chengdu and other cities, building 5G communication bridges for life-saving treatment.

Internally, to protect the health and safety of employees, ZTE has established emergency measures for prevention and control, and is promoting them in an orderly manner. These measures are supporting employees in epidemic areas, guaranteeing emergency materials, extending the Spring Festival holidays, reducing employee mobility at home and abroad, enhancing work area hygiene, and etc.

ZTE has issued Emergency Preparedness Guide about the new coronavirus pneumonia to all employees, and has distributed masks to employees in Wuhan for free. In the meantime, all employees are required to check in their health status on a daily basis through icenter, one of the company’s in-house platforms.

ZTE has extended the Spring Festival holiday in accordance with Chinese government regulations, while strictly abiding by the requirements of local governments for the date of resumption of work, and has made guidelines for employees to resume work.

If the employees are in Hubei Province, they should continue to stay there for the relevant requirements of the local government. Based on the actual situation, and on the premise of ensuring the health and safety of employees, ZTE will reasonably arrange employees to work or work from home, and will not arrange overseas trips during this special period any more.

Employees who work in other cities in China and can work normally are required to wear masks, wash hands frequently, and reduce chances of long-term face-to-face communication with others while being at work in office.

ZTE has sorted out the situation of employees traveling abroad for business, returning to overseas office locations and returning to China, and has issued the procedures and requirements for travel during the emergency period. ZTE will take a two-week observation period before the employees take the business trip to confirm that there is no problem before leaving. All employees are required to wear masks on the way out. When they arrive, the local office will arrange for the airport pick-up. Employees must be self-isolated for health observation in the designated dormitories or hotels for 2 weeks.

ZTE has vigorously strengthened the cleaning of relevant places, including offices, canteens, dormitories, and shuttle buses, and increased the frequency of disinfection for several areas, especially in canteens, conference rooms, elevators, and dormitories to ensure environmental hygiene.

Taking temperature checks of people accessing office buildings, ZTE has set up a temporary rest area for people with abnormal body temperature. At the same time, ZTE has established communication channels with local governments and hospitals to ensure timely support in case of emergencies.

With great commitment to the current epidemic situation, ZTE will fully support operators, promptly responding to the needs of temporary networks construction in various places, and will continue to care for the health of employees and related personnel by making prevention arrangements accordingly. ZTE will undertake the public responsibility to help curb the epidemic as soon as possible.

Motorola Software Supports Coronavirus Patient Recovery in Brazil

As coronavirus continues to impact communities around the world, many healthcare professionals seek innovative ways to care for those infected. When patients do recover enough from COVID-19 to be discharged from the hospital, they often face a long and challenging road to wellness. Dealing with lingering symptoms, uncertainty about future immunity, and wildly disparate living situations, recovering patients need ways to be monitored and supported. Custom-designed technology can help.

To assist in the recovery phase of coronavirus, Motorola teams quickly developed a software solution to monitor COVID-19 patients after they leave the Unicamp Hospital de Clínicas in Campinas, Brazil.

Upon discharge from the hospital, the patient receives a card with a QR Code and the registration number of the doctor responsible for the remote monitoring. When scanned, the code opens a customized browser in the patient’s smartphone—meaning no special app needs to be installed.

For 14 days, the patient will answer five simple questions about their state of health, recording symptoms and biometrics such as temperature, amount of coughing, tiredness, and shortness of breath during the previous 24 hours. After the patient completes the questionnaire, their information is logged into the hospital system. If any coronavirus symptoms are detected or if there are any concerns, the data is sent directly to the doctors, who will get in touch with the patient for further instructions.

“Since this is a new disease, many people feel insecure about the possibility of their condition getting worse,” said Plínio Trabasso, the epidemiologist responsible for the COVID-19 monitoring system at the Unicamp HC. “Therefore, having a doctor monitor their progress – even at a distance – and having an open channel to the hospital without the patient having to leave home increases their feeling and their degree of safety.”

The measure offers the patient greater convenience and helps promote social isolation to reduce the potential for contagion in the community.

Since the implementation of the solution, monitoring has become faster and more efficient. Before deploying the new software, a hospital attendant had to call each one of the patients every day to ask the basic questions and then send responses along to the doctor. Now, the doctor receives their patients’ questionnaires in real time and hospital attendants do not need to contact patients daily.

“As soon as the solution is fully implemented and working perfectly, it may be extended to other public hospitals and may even be used to monitor patients with different diseases,” said Edilson Silva, Software Development manager in Motorola’s “Dogfooding” team.

Edilson’s team is responsible for testing Motorola’s innovations amongst employee and volunteer populations—getting real-world feedback to inform their work. They are skilled at iterating and customizing new solutions to meet customer needs. The Dogfooding team’s approach to problem solving is readily applicable to the complex and ever-evolving challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Motorola’s solution to monitoring recovering COVID-19 patients at home is just one example of how the company is responding to global needs during the coronavirus pandemic. While this donation is only in use in Brazil, the software will continue to be evaluated, improved, and hopefully implemented in other public hospitals to support the efforts of healthcare providers.

LG Electronics Inc. (LG) has prevailed in a decision by the the Munich (Ger.) District Court I ruling that Turkish-based home appliance companies Beko Deutschland GmbH and Grundig Intermedia GmbH had infringed LG’s patent. The lawsuits centered on the unlicensed implementation of LG’s freezer door-ice making technology.

LG will now seek an injunction on the sale of infringing refrigerators produced by Ar-çelik A.Ş. in Turkey and imported and sold by Beko and Grundig. LG’s freezer door-ice making technology was originally developed by LG for its Side-by-Side refrigerator models and is included in a portfolio of more than 400 patents specifically relating to door-ice making technology.

“LG Electronics is pleased with the court’s decision that Turkish companies should not be allowed to continue using technology developed by many LG engineers over thousands of hours without due compensation,” said Jeon Saeng-gyu, executive vice president of LG’s Intellectual Property Center. “On behalf of innovators and creators world over, LG will continue to challenge the practice of intellectual property theft by companies that believe they can benefit from the hard work of others.”
