With the Covid-19 virus now part of our every day lives people have been looking for better and easier ways of working / living through the pandemic.
We spotted this clever mask and liked it immediately.
A lot of companies are purchasing acrylic screens to protect their staff but, what if the staff could wear them and, especially with customer contact the smile and facial expressions are paramount to good social interactions.
For further protection we would recommend safety or reading glasses, though this new design with chin rest allows air flow from below to prevent condensation and fogging.
At £1.66 per mask (Based on cartons of 40 and excludes VAT) these masks also represent excellent value.
Within the current age of technology we feel that the cure should already have been invented and, by now be available at every health centre so that we can move on and plan that holiday, wedding, birthday party.
Unfortunately the cure is still not in sight and many people tire of the differences in their workstyles, be they from home, at work but with distancing measures or worse of all out of work or furloghed.
The staff at Merlin Industrial were fortunate in that they had the technology in place to work from several locations, and all of their workforce are well and able to answer enquiries along with offering some small bit of normalcy during the epidemic.
Authorities in Beijing have locked down parts of the city, reinstated some restrictions, and are testing tens of thousands of residents amid a burst of new SARS-CoV-2 infections.
As of Monday, authorities have reported 79 cases in four days. Almost all of the cases link to the Xinfadi food market, the city’s largest wholesale meat and vegetable market. The market has a staggeringly large number of patrons, and experts fear that there are many more cases yet to be identified, each of which could spark additional outbreaks.
Before this, Beijing had gone more than 50 days without seeing any locally acquired cases of COVID-19.
In a press conference Monday, experts at the World Health Organization said the outbreak was significant.
“Certainly, in China, when you have spent over 50 days without having any significant local transmission, a cluster like this is a concern and it needs to be investigated and controlled,” said WHO Executive Director Michael Ryan. “And that is what the Chinese authorities are doing.”
Over the weekend as the outbreak in Beijing became clear, authorities there shut down and sealed off the market, locked down some nearby neighborhoods, began extensive testing, and banned large gatherings.
With the swift action, Zeng Guang, a senior epidemiologist with the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, was quoted in the Beijing Daily as saying that “Beijing will not become a second Wuhan.” He urged residents to not be nervous and “follow the government’s command, trust the disease control personnel, and trust the doctors.”
WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus noted the outbreak in his opening remarks at today’s press conference, adding that “Even in countries that have demonstrated the ability to suppress transmission, countries must stay alert to the possibility of resurgence.”
Meanwhile, health experts in the United States are warning of the potential for a similar reinstatement of restrictions and lockdowns. Cases are increasing in 22 states, and many of the increases are not due to increased testing. Yet, many Americans appear to be shrugging social-distancing recommendations and precautions.
