With more than 1000 deaths and tens of thousands of people infected, the Novel Coronavirus is a fast-spreading disease which has been declared a Global Health Emergency by the World Health organization. The WHO also dedicated a webpage to the virus where you can find the latest research on the disease, a FAQ section, and other information.
The virus is transmitted through human contact, bodily fluids (sneezing), or through touching contaminated objects.
From China, the virus reached 27 other countries. The UAE counts, as of today 10/02/2020, 7 cases and 0 deaths.
While panicking is not wise, precaution is of the essence. In today’s interconnected world, diseases such as Coronavirus can rapidly travel across the globe, and hospitals might have to interact with international patients who do not speak their language.
Remote interpreting gives on-demand, immediate access to language services which might be lifesaving.
On-demand Interpreting Services
Thanks to new technologies and fast internet connections, remote interpreting is becoming more and more popular among organizations such as hospitals, airports, courts, and hotels.
The reason behind this success relies on its immediacy and value.
While on-site interpreters have to be physically present during medical examinations, court hearings, or other events, remote interpreters can be contacted on demand through applications or websites.
This allows to save on travel expenses and to choose from a global network of highly qualified professionals working in every language, without having to rely on local availability.
