FLASH BATTERY: 10,000 EUROS FOR HOSPITAL IN REGGIO EMILIA. PRIME MINISTER’S DECREE: SMART-WORKING OFFICES OPEN, MANUFACTURING CLOSED
24/03/2020 – PRESS RELEASE 2/2020
10,000 euros to the Fondazione Grade charity to purchase equipment needed by the intensive care department at Santa Maria Nuova Hospital in Reggio Emilia and other local healthcare providers to treat patients with Covid-19. Righi makes a special appeal to young entrepreneurs who – he says – “have already established the way ahead for their firms”. “This”, he emphasises, “is the moment to invest in a wider sense for the benefit of everyone, considering both the public sector and the many private sector organisations that are making extraordinary efforts, which often go unnoticed in this area”.
Following the announcement of a decree by the prime minister to strengthen measures to slow the spread of Covid-19, all manufacturing in Italy not deemed essential is suspended, and this includes the Kaitek Flash Battery factory. All customer services that can be carried out remotely will remain in operation, as will commercial activities, consultancy, administration and the buying department.
