NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY AMIDST THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC – PART II

In last week’s article, we talked about the positive impact the nuclear industry is making to help combat the COVID pandemic. We will continue with the benefits of nuclear technologies during this pandemic. Before that, we will take some time to say thank you to our frontliners in this fight. It is evident that we are winning by the day.  We are also grateful to everyone for making the effort to stay at home in order to minimise the spread of the diseases. We can only win this by working together. We say a big thank you to you all!!!

在上周的文章中,我们谈到了核工业在抗击新冠疫情中所产生的积极影响。在这场尚未结束的“战疫”中我们将持续获益于核科技带来的帮助。在文章开始之前,我们衷心地向奋斗在前线的勇士们说一声谢谢,很明显不久的将来我们就会在这场“战疫”中胜出。我们也由衷感谢大家自我隔离在家以尽量减少疾病传播所作出的努利。只有通过共同的努力,我们才能赢得这场没有硝烟的战役。非常感谢你们!

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The global pandemic has necessitated dramatic action to be taken in all aspects of life globally and the nuclear industry is no different. The nuclear industry is assessing measures to safeguard their workforce and implementing business continuity plans to ensure continuous operation of key aspects of their businesses.

COVID-19是由严重急性呼吸综合征冠状病毒2(SARS-CoV-2)引起的一种传染病。全球大流行病要求全球在生活的各个方面采取重大行动,核工业也不例外。核工业正在评估保护其员工的措施,并实施商业运行连续性计划,以确保其业务的关键方面持续运作。

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is providing diagnostic kits, equipment and training in nuclear-derived detection techniques to countries asking for assistance in tackling the worldwide spread of the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19. The assistance, requested by 14 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, is part of intensified global efforts to contain infections.

国际原子能机构正在向请求协助的国家提供诊断包、设备和核衍生检测技术培训。非洲、亚洲、拉丁美洲和加勒比14个国家请求提供援助,这是全球控制疫情传播所作出的努力的一部分。

NRG, a Netherlands based internationally operating nuclear service provider, has regularly produced isotopes. NRG, through its Petten nuclear research reactors in Petten, Netherlands, produces several isotopes for medical applications, including molybdenum technetium, which is used exclusively for diagnostics. Other medical isotopes produced by NRG include lutetium-177, iridium-192, and strontium-89. NRG in precisely addressing the coronavirus has said: “Our social role for the 30,000 patients who are helped daily with the medical isotopes from Petten is of enormous importance. We will make every effort to continue to provide this. We are discussing this with all partners throughout the production chain. We will also try to continue our nuclear services in other sectors as well as possible. We are confident that we will work this out together. Take care of yourself and each other!”

总部位于荷兰的国际运营核服务提供商NRG定期生产同位素。NRG利用其位于荷兰Petten的研究型反应堆,生产了几种用于医学的同位素,包括专门用于诊断的钼锝。NRG产生的其他医学同位素包括:镥-177、铱-192和锶-89。NRG在精确诊断冠状病毒时曾说:“我们每天使用来自Petten的医学同位素帮助30000名患者进行诊断,我们所承担的社会角色是非常重要的。我们将尽一切努力继续提供这一服务。我们正在与整个生产链中的所有合作伙伴讨论这个问题。我们还将尽可能继续在其他部门提供核服务。我们相信我们会一起解决这个问题。愿我们大家一切安好!

” In China, industrial irradiation facilities were made available for the treatment of medical supplies, not only to destroy the coronavirus, but also to disinfect and sterilize medical supplies to remove any other virus or bacteria. In Russia, irradiation facilities have sterilized 7,853,480 medical masks as of April 28, as well as 151,000 portable lab kits to test for COVID-19.

在中国,工业辐照设施为医疗用品的处理敞开了大门,这些设施不仅可以帮助销毁冠状病毒,还可以对医疗用品进行消杀工作,以清除其他病毒或细菌。             在俄罗斯,截至4月28日,工业辐照设施已经消毒了7853480个医用口罩,以及用于检测COVID-19的151000个便携式实验室试剂盒。

Ontario Power Generation (OPG), which operates the Pickering and Darlington nuclear power stations in the province, is utilizing 3D printing technology to produce plastic face shields for health-care workers. The company has partnered with Ontario Tech University in Oshawa to fast-track the production of the shields.

经营皮克林和达林顿核电站的安大略发电公司(OPG)正利用3D打印技术为医护人员生产塑料面罩。该公司已与安大略理工大学奥沙瓦分校合作,以保证防护用具的生产进度。

We are in darks time and it is heart-warming to see professionals from all walks of life and different fields making tremendous efforts in fighting this pandemic. Nuclear energy in this situation has proven to us again that, its applications are beneficial to mankind.
我们正处于一个黑暗的时刻,看到来自各行各业和不同领域的专业人员为抗击这一流行病作出巨大努力,这让我们在黑暗中感受到了一丝温馨。核能在这种情况下再次向我们证明,它的应用对人类是有益的
