Coronavirus Latest Updates: Geeplus Aids in Fight Against COVID-19 by Ramping up Production of Crucial Part

Beckenham, UK – As the World health Organization (WHO) continue to battle the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, Geeplus has expanded production personnel and have been approved to work around the clock to support the top ventilator manufacturers with our advanced VM38 voice coil motors over the next several months. 

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 Continues to Increase
With cases of COVID-19 continuing to spread, and an increasing number of governing bodies choosing to cancel or postpone major events and gatherings as a result, the demand for advanced medical ventilators has steadily increased. Geeplus is now dealing with a demand that has more than quadrupled, which is of course a major challenge. We’ve expanded our production team and we’re 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)

Latest Updates
The latest statistics on the virus show over 174,000 cases across 135 countries and territories worldwide, with over 6600 deaths as a result of the virus. On the other hand, over 77,000 have recovered from COVID-19.

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.
