Coronavirus: Public urged to watch out for fake products after 'surge' in reports

The public have been warned to stay vigilant to criminals selling fake coronavirus-related products.

The Local Government Association said some councils have seen a "significant surge" in reports of scams by those seeking to exploit virus fears.

More than 500,000 sub-standard masks were seized by a London council, while other criminals have attempted to trick people into giving personal details.

The LGA is calling on the public to report scams to their local council.

Unbelievable! Just 2 months too late.
Greece has had this requirement from the start and carries out random checks that it is being adhered to.

Greece's 13033 number handles over 100 mln text messages for exceptional travel

Greece's Digital Governance Ministry said over 100 million text messages for exceptional travel were solicited through the telephone number 13033, a service designed by the General Secretariat for Telecommunications and Post (GGTT) of the Ministry of Digital Governance in cooperation with telecommunications providers.

On average, the 13033 number served 1,818 messages per minute, while 7,500 messages were processed for the exceptional movement per minute. The service, which was designed and launched in less than 48 hours, received rave reviews, with the OECD describing it as the best practice for managing exceptional travel.

Cars could ‘talk’ to each other to warn of dangers using 5G, experts predict

Cars could be able to “talk” to each other to warn about dangers on the roads using 5G technology in future, according to researchers.

Experts at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) believe 5G may enable cars to send each other messages about risks such as ice or potholes.

The GCU smart connectivity and sensing research group’s work using mobile networks spans more than 25 years and includes street-lighting systems, vehicles, communication and smart cities.

Its experts now believe the high-speed, low-delay nature of 5G will improve the reliability and capability of automated vehicles to the point where they will be safer than the manual cars being driven today.

Dr Dimitrios Liarokapis, a member of the research group, said: "To have a better idea of what the future will look like, think of having Tesla-like cars that not only use sensors to scan what’s around them, they can also talk to each other and exchange safety-related information about their surroundings over an area that covers several square miles.

"With the help of 5G, a vehicle-generated early warning system that alerts drivers is feasible within the next few years."
