Abbott announced that it has received CE certification for its Panbio ™ COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test Device for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in people suspected of having COVID-19.
The Rapid Antigen Test, which is licensed for use by healthcare professionals, requires no instrumentation and results are obtained in as little as 15 minutes, making it a valuable tool for large-scale testing in a variety of population settings . The Panbio COVID-19 Ag Test is a reliable, affordable, portable, and expandable option for testing for COVID-19.
Rapid antigen testing can also be a very useful tool to support public health strategies, such as contact tracing and large-scale testing of people suspected of having an active infection. Rapid antigen tests allow frequent testing of COVID-19 on a large scale and thus quickly identify infected people and reduce the spread of the virus, ”said José Antonio Leal, commercial director of Abbott. Abbott is working with national authorities to implement these tests in Spain.
Preliminary results from an Abbott clinical study of 241 samples showed that the Panbio COVID-19 Ag test has a sensitivity of 93.3% and a specificity of 99.4% in people suspected of being exposed to COVID-19 or who had symptoms in the past seven days.

Google gives a Digital Digital Boost ’for the economic recovery of Spain

The situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, with the lockdown of the population and the forced closure of businesses, has put many companies in an unprecedented situation. At the same time, staying at home has reinforced the fundamental role that technology plays in our lives, accelerating the trends that we hoped to incorporate in a much longer period of time. However, only 14% of SMBs have a digitization plan. The keys to recovery and to face future challenges are to accelerate a transformation that allows companies to diversify their services, find new sources of income and be prepared for a new normality where digital will be essential. 

For this reason, Google Spain has announced its collaboration with the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism to launch 'Impulso Digital', a campaign that seeks to support Spanish companies in their digitization, especially SMBs, in addition to promoting national and international tourism and digital training.

The project also includes the "Digital Impulse platform with Google" (link: https://grow.google/intl/es), which brings together free tools, guides and training aimed at the development of companies and professionals on a single website.

This initiative is part of the commitment that Google has announced this July 1 (link: https://www.blog.google/outreach-initiatives/grow-with-google/free-tools-and-training-help-economic-recovery-europe-middle-east-and-africa/)  to help 10 million people and companies to go digital and grow in Europe, the Middle East and Africa over the next 18 months.
