Hytera Communications announced that it set up a national emergency support team after the COVID-19 outbreak in China. The company proactively contacted health committees, prevention and control departments, medical institutions and nonprofit organizations throughout China to help coordinate all aspects of support, including equipment donations, communications support and field services.

Additionally, Hytera donated more than 3,000 communications devices nationwide and will start to produce surgical masks to help prevent and control the epidemic. Hytera’s advanced intelligent manufacturing factory is now quickly switching over to mask production to meet increased demand because of the epidemic. Production is expected to start in March.

As of March 4, 90,000 COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases have been confirmed worldwide, according to the latest World Health Organization (WHO) statistics. A large number of new cases have recently emerged in South Korea, Italy and Iran. In addition, eight countries, including Portugal and Saudi Arabia, have reported their first confirmed cases.

Responding to the outbreak of COVID-19 has rapidly become a shared global challenge. In many ways, the effectiveness of efforts to control the epidemic is determined by the efficiency of the response by health authorities and police as well as the management of transportation, communities and public spaces. The benefits offered by private network communications are clear.

Hytera not only provided strong communications guarantees for the rapid seven-day construction of Wuhan’s Vulcan Mountain Hospital and Raytheon Hospital in China but also introduced a safer epidemic prevention and control model for further hospital management, accelerating the diagnosis of new cases, process of rescue operations and effectively avoiding viral transmissions. At the same time, Hytera’s communications network is playing a major role across various aspects of epidemic prevention and control efforts, such as medical services, police services, transportation, community and park management.

One of the core values of private network communications is to provide emergency communications and command-and-dispatch support to governments to help ensure public safety in critical situations. Globally, Hytera's business solutions have been deployed throughout more than 120 countries and regions, and are used in private communications for public safety, transportation, emergency rescue and operator services. Hytera will continue to actively participate in the fight against COVID-19 around the world.

Hytera’s communications technology is used by Dutch National Public Safety System Project, Metropolitan Police Project in London, Croatian Public Safety Project, Kazakhstan Emergency Rescue Project and Jordan Police Project. In February, Hytera donated communications devices and medical supplies to Keimyung University Dongsan Medical Center and Dalseo-gu City Hall in Daegu and other government departments in South Korea.
