Corona – India is locked-down but we are working as usual!

Dear all,

We are living in extraordinary times with the COVID-19 virus affecting our lives in so many ways. Many parts of the world are in lock-down and the situation evolves on a day-to-day basis. In this situation, we prioritise the health and safety of our staff while we do our best to serve our clients with the same standards as we always do!

The Indian government has declared a national lock-down which started at midnight on 24/3 and which will last for 21 days. All international passenger flights are cancelled, state borders are closed, all passenger trains are cancelled and people are not allowed to leave our houses for anything but essential business such as buying food. A few essential services are exempted.

All our employees have laptops and are working from home. However, our redundant servers supported with reserve power from our solar panels and lithium batteries and multiple internet providers means that it is business as usual for us apart from working from all over the city and in some cases across Tamil Nadu.

The number of active cases in India as I write this is around 933 whereof 39 in our state and 26 deaths (Source: India Covid-19 Tracker). Given India’s population of more than 1.3 billion people, these figures may not sound high compared to the present figures in Europe and America. However, the Indian government wants to ensure that the disease is managed at an early stage.

We are open for business, please contact us if you need help with any IT development!

Stay safe!

Mikael Gislén
Managing Director
