Fuji Xerox and Fujifilm donate equipment to coronavirus sites

Fuji Xerox and Fujifilm are providing medical and printing equipment support to coronavirus affected sites in China.

As part of the support packaging, Fujifilm is donating approximately seven million RMB ($A1.5 million) in medical and printing equipment and supplies to support the novel coronavirus response in China.

Also included is the supply of Fujifilm’s medical diagnostic systems and devices that support clinical examinations for pneumonia and Fuji Xerox’s printers to be used at medical sites.

“Fujifilm also continues to support medical sites in Wuhan and other regions in China by providing medical equipment installation and maintenance services quickly and by responding to customer inquiries 24 hours a day,” the company said, in a statement.

“Fujifilm and its group companies extend their sincerest sympathies to all those infected and affected by the novel coronavirus.”

The coronavirus epidemic has been affecting a number of countries, with the most number of cases in China.

Recently, Konica Minolta had to halt development, production and sales in China until February 9 with the suspension not affecting operations in Hong Kong and the healthcare business in Xiamen.

The global technology giant issued a statement confirming the move that it has “suspended operations in development, production and sales in China until February 9” following the coronavirus outbreak.

In addition, the outbreak also resulted in a few trade shows in China being postponed. Organiser Informa Markets issued a letter to exhibitors and visitors, explaining the situation and postponement.

“As the Novel Coronavirus continue to rage on a large scale across China, many provinces and cities have activated the highest level of response mechanism for major public health emergencies,” it stated.

“To protect the health and safety of all exhibitors and visitors, LED China 2020 Shenzhen, originally scheduled to be held from February 24 to 26 at Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center… along with its concurrent events, Entertainment Design Expo 2020, Commercial Integration China 2020 Shenzhen, Digital Signage China 2020 Shenzhen, Sign China 2020 Shenzhen and Retail China 2020 will be postponed.”
