Leading telecommunications services provider, Airtel Nigeria, has announced a commitment of over N1.9B towards the fight against COVID-19 in Nigeria.

 

Providing a breakdown of the pledged sum, Airtel said N200m will go towards the provision of an Isolation Center or any required Medical Facility agreed with the appropriate Health Authority in the Country, another N120m towards the provision of over 100,000 N95 Respirator Masks for Health Workers across the Country.

It is also offering free Short Message Services (SMS) to customers across all networks worth over N1B as well as free data for customers to access educational and health sites worth about N500m. The sites include those of the Federal Ministry of Health and Nigeria Center for Disease Control on COVID-19.

 

The Company has earlier commenced a multi-million-naira educational awareness campaign to sensitize Nigerians on steps to take to prevent the spread of the virus. Airtel added that it is also committing about N100m to support the NCDC, Port Health Services and the 36 States, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on the provision of toll-free lines to help in the fight against COVID-19 and to connect the NCDC’s offices nationwide with Broadband services.

Employees are not left out. They have voluntarily contributed N20m to be donated to Lagos State Government during the week for provision of food items to needy families during this crisis.

 

Commenting on the efforts of the organization to join well-meaning Nigerians and corporate entities to stop the spread of COVID-19, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Airtel Nigeria, Segun Ogunsanya, said Airtel is deeply connected with the feelings of every Nigerian at this time and it is inspired to act and continue to go the extra mile to ensure a stop to the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.

“As a key stakeholder in Nigeria, we are committed to supporting the government at every level in stopping the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to intensify our efforts and support as we leverage our technology and network to bring relief and succour to Nigerians at this trying time. We have an obligation to support our communities in fighting this virus and I have no doubt in my mind that we will succeed.” he said.

 

Airtel had since commenced the educational awareness campaign, which includes rendering Public Service Announcements in local languages including Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo. The nationwide awareness campaign went live on Tuesday, 24th March 2020 and has been heavy on both traditional and social media and across radio, billboard, press, phones/devices and digital media.

 

Acknowledging Airtel’s donations to the Port Health Services, Dr Morenike Alex-Okoh, the Director of Nigeria’s Port Health Services commended Airtel Nigeria for pledging its support immediately the request was made and indeed fulfilling the promise within a short space of time. 

 

“We are inspired by the show of corporate social responsibility by Airtel and look forward to similar support from other organizations not only to the Port Health Services but to the overall effort to fight the Coronavirus pandemic,” she commented.

 

Airtel has also partnered with leading e-learning platforms to offer data-free access to their sites, empowering young Nigerians to benefit from quality education during the COVID-19 period. 

 

These leading e-learning platforms include Oyo State Government’s e-learning portal and services; ULesson, a leading e-learning platform offering lessons for SS1-SS3 in the STEM subjects of Mathematics, Physics, Biology and Chemistry) and Myschool.ng, a leading exam preparation platform for SSCE, JAMB, NECO.

 

Others are PASS.NG, a leading exam preparation platform for SSCE, JAMB, NECO, Common Entrance, ICAN, JSCE, N-Power) and Screenclass, an emerging learning platform offering tutorials in key subjects for Junior & Senior Secondary School, Common Entrance.

 

Airtel has also assured that its priority during this COVID-19 period will be the wellbeing and safety of all its employees, customers, their family as well as every Nigerian.

 

“At this point, we know that our first priority must be you and your family’s health and well-being, and we hope you stay safe and healthy. At the same time, our hearts go out to those at the front line: medical staff and caregivers who put themselves at risk to do all it takes to serve others. 

 

“In much the same way, we at Airtel also accept that we provide an essential service – keeping our customers and the country connected. Therefore, we are doing everything we can to keep our employees and partners safe as they connect you with your businesses and loved ones.  We know there is a great responsibility on us as connectivity providers, to do what it takes to keep you connected during this crisis” said Ogunsanya, Airtel Nigeria’s Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director.

The upgraded DEEBOT T9 with these cutting-edge features is more powerful and smarter than ever before.

DEEBOT T9 raises the bar for home cleaning with 9 stunning features, including the ECOVACS' leading TrueDetect 3D 2.0, a real-time strategic obstacle detection and avoidance technology; TrueMapping 2.0 for precise navigation; ECOVACS HOME App upgraded with 3D Map, and OZMO™ Pro 2.0 Electric Oscillating Mopping System that ensures stubborn stains are removed more efficiently and quietly, compared to previous generation.


"We keep a close eye on market demand and there was a clear indication that consumers want smart products that make homecare even simpler, doing as much and as thorough as they can, in one go. ECOVACS is committed to giving consumers the latest in smart and unique cleaning experience," said David Qian, Chief Executive Officer of ECOVACS ROBOTICS. "We've introduced our new-generation technologies, combined with multiple features while adding even more to our DEEBOT T9 to make sure every inch and floor surface is covered. Our Best DEEBOT Just Got Better."


Upgraded ECOVACS HOME App with Improved Obstacle Avoidance and Navigation Technology


TrueDetect 3D 2.0 technology comes with an upgraded algorithm to quickly detect different types of obstacles and strategically avoid them. The DEEBOT T9 can detect object sizes right down to mere millimeters, which is ten times more accurate than products using traditional infra-red technology, with a detection range of 70-350 millimeters. Moreover, DEEBOT T9 can navigate smoothly in different indoor environments and lighting conditions without any interruptions, even in total darkness. TrueDetect 3D 2.0 technology allows the robotic vacuum cleaner to avoid collisions, entanglements, or disruptions, so users do not have to monitor the robot and clean it continuously.

Combining TrueDetect 3D 2.0 and TrueMapping 2.0 with 3D Maps brings a whole new level of automated cleaning efficiency and flexibility for users. They can quickly locate the robotic vacuum cleaner's exact position via the 2D and 3D Maps. They can also manage their entire cleaning task on-the-fly, by toggling between the 2D and 3D Maps with the upgraded ECOVACS HOME App.

The new ECOVACS HOME App is designed for intuitive use, enhancing the user experience and reinforces the ECOVACS branding. The App is easy to navigate, offering users an optimal cleaning route. The interface integrates all the common features so that users can access critical functions easily. They can customize the amount of water used, suction power, cleaning times, and routes for different rooms.


A Luxurious Cleaning Experience with Built-in Air Freshener


The DEEBOT T9 is the first in the industry to clean floors and freshen the air at the same time. Connected to the DEEBOT's mobile system, the air freshener gives users a vacuuming and fragrance experience that goes beyond traditional cleaning.

The air freshener's unique design releases the fragrance onto the floor directly to remove musty and pet odors, while the fan at the bottom of the air freshener unit spreads the fragrance evenly.

The air freshener uses replaceable capsules, that can last up to 60 days, featuring three kinds of fragrances. Users can choose to switch the air freshener on or off using the ECOVACS HOME App, and extend its lifespan.


Powerful In-depth Cleaning Performance with OZMO Pro 2.0 and Auto-Empty Station Compatibility


The DEEBOT T9 comes with latest OZMO™ Pro 2.0 Electric Oscillating Mopping System with a newly designed motor and movement structure that minimizes noise.

The enhanced suction power of 3000 Pa also raises the bar in cleaning performance. The high-strength fiberglass structure keeps the suction power consistent when vacuuming both hard floors and carpets. The high-frequency vibration of up to 480 times per minute increases the mopping performance, making it comparable to an electric mop.

The DEEBOT T9 uses a disposable mopping pad that can be safely discarded immediately after cleaning. The specially-designed microfibers absorb water evenly, efficiently capture dust, and reduce residual water stains. The composite structure increases friction between the mopping pad and the floor and helps the OZMO™ Pro 2.0 Electric Oscillating Mopping System effectively remove stubborn stains on the floor.

A power-up kit is available for the DEEBOT T9 that further enhances the cleaning performance and user experience. The Auto-Empty Station, which clears the robot's dustbin automatically after cleaning with minimal human intervention, is also compatible with DEEBOT T9.


Pricing and Availability


DEEBOT T9's suggested retail price is IDR 8.29 Million. It will be officially available at Shopee with special price of IDR 8.09 Million and comes with a IDR 200K discounted voucher and a free giftpack on April 17 to 18 ECOVACS X Shopee Brand Day.


It is also available at Lazada, Tokopedia, and Blibli from April 19 onwards with an IDR 200K discounted voucher and free giftpack as launch promotion until April 22.
