The second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is at its peak and measures to stop the widespread, are also being implemented by the Indian Government. However, the second wave that just popped out is way stronger than the first one, making it the authorities difficult to handle.
In April 2020, Samsung had contributed INR 20 crore to India’s fight against the pandemic. This included a donation to the Central government and support to the local administration in Noida by thousands of preventive masks and Personal Preventive Equipment (PPE) kits.
Continuing support, Samsung now donating USD 5 million (INR 37 Crores) to fight against the current surge of Covid-19. Moreover, donations are granted to central/state governments to encourage the healthcare sector with essential medical equipment for hospitals, as per the citizenship initiatives.
The decision has been taken after due consultations with various stakeholders in India while looking at the critical needs of local administrations. Therefore, Samsung will donate USD 3 million to the Centre as well as to the states of Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, where the virus spread is quite eminent.
In addition, to help the healthcare system that has been strained over the last few weeks, Samsung will also be providing medical supplies worth USD 2 million including 100 Oxygen Concentrators, 3,000 Oxygen Cylinders, and one million LDS (Low Dead Space) syringes. At the same time, it also supporting the manufacturers of LDC syringes which reduces the amount of drug left in the device after injection.
Samsung will cover the vaccination costs for over 50,000 peoples
As part of its people initiative, Samsung will cover the vaccination costs for over 50,000 eligible employees and beneficiaries all around India, with an aim to safeguard their lives, as soon as the vaccine doses become available. However, it also includes all Samsung Experience Consultants, who work at electronics retail stores across the country.
Lastly, with this positive step, Samsung ensuring the health of people all around the country including its own employee and their families. Besides, considering the hard work of all frontline workers we should be saluting them with full of respect and warm hearts as they are working day and night to fight the battle of the COVID-19 pandemic without bothering about their own families.

T-Mobile agreed to pay $19.5 million to FCC for last year’s 911 outage in US
It must have been a really painful experience if you had to contact the respondent first and the 911 call did not connect, but the same thing happened to thousands of T-Mobile customers in the US on June 15, 2020, in 12 hours.
As a result of the alarming incident, the wireless carrier this week agreed to pay $19.5 million in a settlement with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
As a result of this horrific incident, the wireless carrier this week agreed to pay $19.5 million in settlements with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). According to the FCC report, 911 interruptions nationwide last year resulted in a “complete failure” of more than 23,000 emergency calls.
The FCC stated that the “brief failure of the leased fiber transport link on the T-Mobile network” was the initial cause of the useless time and that it was out and combined due to a temporary routing error in the single location. The restoration was also affected by a temporary failure. ”
In an extensively reported statement on the settlement with the FCC this week, T-Mobile said it had improved the reliability of its emergency systems to make 911 available to customers when needed.
It now “goes beyond FCC’s research and continues our focus on our ongoing network build-up,” the company said.
“We understand how critical reliable connectivity is to ensure public safety and we take that responsibility very seriously,” T-Mobile said in the statement. “We have built resiliency into our emergency systems to ensure that our 911 elements are available when they’re needed. This was a short-term isolated outage and we immediately took steps to further enhance our network to prevent this type of event from happening in the future.”
This is not the first time T-Mobile customers have encountered problems calling 911. In 2014, several interruptions blocked the service for a total of three hours. The carrier agreed to pay the FCC $ 17.5 million to resolve the issue.
