Gulf Energy Development Public Company Limited or GULF presented a donation of twenty million baht to the Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University to fund the procurement of five ventilators and three Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) machines that are able to provide prolonged cardiac and respiratory support to patients whose heart and lungs are unable to fully function. This much-needed medical equipment is vital and in short supply amidst the new coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak.

Mr. Sarath Ratanavadi, Chief Executive Officer, Gulf Energy Development, Public Company Limited stated, “GULF has consistently supported public health programs for many years. Given the current situation, the company is aware of the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Thailand. We therefore would like to provide 20 million baht support to the Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital for the procurement of this essential medical equipment to improve the hospital’s ability to treat COVID-19 patients and increase their chances of survival. This is also a long-term investment as the medical equipment could be used to help other patients with lung and heart disease moving forward.”

Professor Piyamitr Sritara, MD, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital added, “As the COVID-19 outbreak is getting worse, the medical personnel at Ramathibodi Hospital need to speed up preparations to treat critically-ill patients whose numbers may increase in the future. As such, ECMO and ventilators are crucial equipment in a situation like this.”

With regards to COVID-19 infection, Assistant Professor Kamthorn Malatham, Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Pediatrics, Ramathibodi Hospital explained, “For this new coronavirus, 85% of patients have only a few symptoms without complications. However, we are concerned about the remaining 15% with complications who present severe symptoms as their condition worsens rapidly. They develop pneumonia, which requires life-support technology such as the ECMO that acts as artificial heart and lungs.”

“The state of the outbreak in Thailand is still in the golden period. This means that the number of infected people is relatively low but is starting to increase. There are two possible scenarios for Thailand, either a steady rise like in Singapore or a huge spike like what happened in Italy and Iran. Medical personnel hope that it will be like the former so that there will be sufficient medical personnel on the front lines and medical equipment for treating patients. Of course, prevention is better than cure, especially since there is currently no vaccine. As a result, we would like to ask for everyone’s cooperation to take care of themselves so that we all could get through this situation together,” Associate Professor Dr.Patarawan Woratanarat, MD., Head of Orthopaediecs Department, Ramathibodi Hospital concluded.

The extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machine acts as a temporary medical intervention for patients whose heart and lungs are unable to provide an adequate amount of oxygen to their bodies, such as patients with respiratory failure due to severe infection. The device also helps patients who are waiting for a heart or lung transplant. It is regarded as medical innovation that significantly reduces the mortality rate of patients in hospitals.

Total Access Communication (dtac) is prepared to keep customers connected as the spread of Covid-19 continues , according to a company statement (March 18).

At the same time, the company is rolling out a range of measures to limit exposure of its employees to the virus , so that they could continue to provide mobile services without interruption.

Dtac chief executive officer Sharad Mehrotra said: “As the coronavirus outbreak spreads and causes a series of serious disruptions, mobile connectivity becomes the most critical way for everyone to stay connected with loves ones, continue to conduct business and receive information from the government. This is why dtac has put in place measures to keep our customers and employees safe, while also ensuring reliable services”.

Most needed services

Should the Covid-19 outbreak escalate, dtac will have to respond to both changing behaviour in mobile usage and the need to maintain uninterupted services for its customers.

Dtac will ensure continuous monitoring of its network with a backup Network Operation Center. dtac has also readied three alternative call centres and automatic response systems to serve any spikes in customer queries.

“We have to be ready to not only maintain our current level of service but adapt it to changing needs if need be. We have the teams ready to do this, and we can even roll out mobile units if need be. We will not let our customers down when they need us most,” said Mehrotra.

Ensuring continued service

Dtac has also implemented measures to limit the organisation’s exposure to possible disruption. dtac has implemented mandatory temperature check for all employees and visitors to its offices. Moreover, cleaning of high-contact surfaces is now performed hourly. Disinfection professionals spray antiseptic solution in its offices every night and all salespersons are required to wear face masks in the shops.

There have been no cases of COVID-19 infection among dtac employees but all employees must self-quarantine for 14 days after returning from high-risk countries or in contact with a possibly infected person.

On March 18-19, dtac is conducting trials for work arrangements where one half of the company headquarters’ employees work from home, alternating with the other half every other day.

Airbnb is searching for the world’s wildest home ideas – and has launched a US$1 million fund to make them a reality.

The Unique Airbnb Fund is the company’s first-ever $1 million programme designed to find and help finance the most unconventional and unusual liveable spaces on the planet.

Ten recipients of the Unique Airbnb Fund will be selected by an expert panel of design and style innovators, including Emmy, Tony and GrammyAward-winning actor Billy Porter, Airbnb superhost Kristie Wolfe, of the famed Big Idaho Potato Hotel, and global and cutting-edge architecture firm MVRDV.

Starting today (March 11), design enthusiasts can submit their proposals at www.airbnb.com/uniquefund. All submissions will be scored against criteria based on creativity, feasibility, sustainability and social good.

Inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of the company’s three co-founders, the Unique Airbnb Fund is meant to enable anyone with an extraordinary house idea to design and build it into a reality, and share it with travelers all over the world.

“The only thing better than pushing the boundaries of style, is empowering others to do the same,” says style icon Billy Porter. “I’m thrilled to join Airbnb in this global search for the most outrageous, spectacular home ideas ever. I can’t wait to see these concepts developed by design lovers from around the world firsthand.”

“The Unique Airbnb Fund is a great initiative that makes hospitality exciting. It will empower people to create new spaces with daring, imaginative and fantastic architecture,” said MVRDV partner Fokke Moerel. “Personal wunderkammers will be created for guests to appreciate and be inspired by.”

Searches for unexpected and unique spaces – such as shepherds huts, windmills and tiny houses – have increased by nearly 70 per cent over last year on Airbnb, based on internal Airbnb data measuring year-over-year growth of searches for unique listings as of February 2020 vs 2019.

Some of the most booked listings of all time include domes, RVs, treehouses, and yurts across the world, based on internal Airbnb data measuring the most booked unique listings as of February 2020.

Applicants can draw inspiration from a plethora of unconventional Airbnb stays, including:

An Elephant-Sized Stay on the Jersey Shore (Margate City, New Jersey, USA)

The Boot – Fairytale Accommodation (Nelson, New Zealand)

Big Idaho Potato Hotel (Boise, Idaho, USA)

Camaya Bali Suboya – Magical Bamboo House (Bali, Indonesia),

Sheep Wagon at Shash Dine (Page, Arizona, USA)

Beautiful Dome with Mountain Views (Rio Negro, Argentina)

UFO Futuro styled Flying Saucer (Redberth, UK)

Cabane Spa Zen (Raray, France)

Cabana Floripa (Santa Catarina, Brazil).

A chance to enter the Unique Airbnb Fund is now open until 10:59am (Thai Time) on April 16, 2020. The ten winners will be selected by the panel of judges mentioned above by May 15, 2020.

GSMA, the association of telecommunications network service providers with more than 800 members worldwide, has certified Advanced Info Service (AIS) as being the first and only 5G network operator in Thailand, AIS chief consumer business officer Pratthana Leelapanang said today (March 10).

This makes Thailand the first country in Southeast Asia to successfully provide 5G service on mobile phones, he said.

AIS paid for the first installment of 2600 MHz spectrum licences on February 21 and received a licence to use the 2600 MHz frequency to provide 5G services officially as the first and only operator in the industry, Pratthana said.

According to him, on the same day and only half an hour after receiving the licence, AIS switched on its 5G network in all regions across the country.

Pratthana said AIS is joining forces with the government and industry to use 5G to support various work including robots that can help the public sector deal with Covid-19, testing the use of 5G in cargo transportation and controlling cranes to lift containers remotely at Laem Chabang’s Hutchison Ports in Sriracha district, Chon Buri.

AIS is also the first to roll out a 5G International Roaming service, beginning with Swisscom in Switzerland, Etisalat in the United Arab Emirates, and soon with China Unicom in China and SK Telecom in South Korea, he added.

Overcoming challenges to sculpt what the mind can see

Mar 10. 2020
Art is a universal medium of expression that can unite individuals despite their differences. This notion is reflected at the UOB Please Touch workshops conducted by UOB (Thai) employees and representatives from social enterprise Klongdinsor Company to help people with visual impairments appreciate, experience and create art.

Now in its fifth year, the UOB Please Touch programme embraces a multi-sensory approach to help people with visual impairments that are aged between10 and 70 appreciate and create art. During the last workshop which focused on sculpting techniques, art professors and UOB (Thai) volunteers helped participants to apply modelling and carving techniques to make pottery and soap sculptures out of natural ingredients such as coffee powder, charcoal, turmeric, black sesame seeds, safflower and aroma oil.

Sanchai Apisaksirikul, Managing Director and Country Head of Finance and Corporate Services at UOB (Thai), said, “The UOB Please Touch programme enables people with visual impairments to tear down a wall of darkness and to overcome the boundaries set by their physical challenges. During the workshops, we saw the happiness they experienced from their cheerful expressions and creative energy. Not only does the art of sculpture bring joy but also helps build a positive attitude towards living life.”

“UOB (Thai) believes that art plays a vital role in society and should be accessible to all. The UOB Please Touch programme is one of the ways in which we demonstrate our support for the community, helping to open minds and hearts through art, children and education.”

By THE NATION

The Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) has employed measures to prevent the spreading of the new coronavirus, or Covid-19, at the MEA head and branch offices.

Phasuk Sampunnachote, director of organisation relations, said that the MEA is concerned about the safety of its staff and customers who come to its facilities to register for services or pay for electricity bills. “We have installed thermoscanners at all entrances to check if anyone has a fever,” she said. “Furthermore, we have hired professional cleaning staff to scrub down our buildings with disinfectants both at customer service areas and offices to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and other germs.”

Phasuk further added that the MEA has ordered all staff to strictly follow the announcements and advices from Ministry of Public Health, as well as publicised general knowledge on Covid-19 and how to prevent oneself from infection via the MEA’s public relation channels both traditional and online.

“The three key steps to prevent Covid-19 spreading are: Avoid staying in crowded areas; avoid making contact with those displaying respiratory symptoms; and take care of hygiene by regularly washing your hands and wear fabric face mask,” she added.

“As for those who have just come back from countries with high risk of infection, please follow the regulations set by the Ministry of Public Health, which include self-quarantine in your residence for at least 14 days,” added Phasuk.
