Coronavirus: Temporary hospitals help resolve with bed shortages and TAC air purifiers help clean contaminated air

Be prepared for the worst – and hope for the best: Many towns and districts are facing the corona crisis in the spirit of this motto. The most recent example for this prudent treatment is the Verden district in Northern Germany. Before the end of March, the district crisis management team began, in coordination with the Aller-Weser Clinic (AWK), to prepare for a possible further increase in cases. Consequently, within a few days, the district council set up a temporary hospital in a container village in its car park.

Privacy screen

Some recent tragic incidents have repeatedly brought this to our attention: Whenever there is a larger number of victims in an accident or an evacuation operation, emergency service workers are forced to show their skills at improvisation. Because it is important to provide a secure area in which the patients can have their own private space.

If the conditions under which the patients are treated are not adequate, the Vario-Screen privacy screens from Trotec can be of great assistance. That’s because they are quick to set up and can be used flexibly.

Protection for everyone involved

Safety Screens

Lengthy traffic jams can occur when drivers pass an accident and slow down to look at the scenery. A driver can easily lose sight of  the end of the jam, and another accident is on the cards. But rubbernecking is not just a major hazard for oncoming traffic. Oftentimes emergency services are held up by the curiosity of drivers and passers-by.

In the worst case, a delay in getting aid to accident victims can have fatal consequences. Protect the injured and give helpers the shielded space that they need for their vital work. Use Trotec’s mobile VarioScreen.

Microsoft confirms that the Internet Explorer 6 is a security risk

Microsoft now officially confirms the necessity to update the Internet Explorer to an up-to-date version. According to the latest security reports the IE6 is a security risk to be taken seriously. Businesses as well as private households are advised to update their browsers to version 7 or 8 of the Internet Explorer as soon as possible.

Tom Köhler, Information Security Director at Microsoft Germany, comments on the report:

“Users who still have Internet Explorer 6 installed on their systems are taking an unnecessary risk and should urgently update to the free version 8, which offers a significantly higher level of protection.”

His statement has its source in the latest Security Intelligence Report for the second half of 2009. This report summarises the collected data of the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT), Forefront and the Security Essentials.

In accordance with Microsoft’s interpretation of the report the best protection against attacks from the internet is not only a healthy mistrust, but also an up-to-date anti-virus software. Although a modern browser provides more security when surfing online the combination of different security programs is still the best solution.
