Megvii donates face masks to help fight coronavirus outbreak at the frontlines  

 

BEIJING, February 11, 2020 – Megvii Technology Limited (“Megvii” or the “Company”) announced today that as of Feb 10, it has donated more than 100,000 medical-grade face masks to help fight the novel coronavirus outbreak at the frontlines of Hubei province and other major cities, as part of the company’s broader contribution to China's anti-epidemic efforts. Masks have been in shortage of supply in recent weeks across the world and especially in Hubei province.  


Megvii has immediately assembled an emergency working group at the outset of the outbreak, led by Yin Qi, Megvii co-founder and CEO. Last week, the company deployed a new AI-enabled body temperature detection solution in public spaces in Beijing, including a subway station, to spot and locate people with elevated temperature in the crowd, without requiring close physical contact with ground staff, which will help optimize passenger flow and reduce transmission risks.  


Megvii will continue to watch closely the development of this devastating outbreak and leverage its technology and resources to do more to combat it.
