Windows 10: the blocking for the 2004 version is lifted on the Surface

Technology: Microsoft was preventing certain Surface devices from updating to the 2004 version due to technical issues. The blockade was lifted on June 29.
Microsoft releases the block it placed on certain Surface devices to prevent them from updating to version 2004. This block prevented users of certain Surface models manufactured by Microsoft, including Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7, from downloading and manually install the latest Windows 10 feature update.

According to information released as part of the May 2020 update, devices with more than one network adapter capable of operating in "Always On, Always Connected" mode may experience unexpected shutdowns and reboots. The Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7 both fall into this category. (Other surface devices can also be included; I asked Microsoft for a list of affected devices, but got no response).

The subsidiary in Nigeria of the French group Axa Assurances launches a telemedicine service

Axa Mansard, a Nigerian subsidiary of the French group Axa Assurances, launched its telemedicine service to meet the medical consultation needs of its customers in these moments of confinement imposed by the coronavirus pandemic on all countries of the world. "One of the lessons the world has taught this pandemic is that health care will always be the top priority for everyone," said Tope Adeniyi, chief executive officer of Axa Mansard.

“The service provides a platform that connects patients with licensed doctors who can consult, diagnose, prescribe medications and make recommendations on medical conditions and treatments. The service will also help our customers reduce the risk of infections and align with social distancing guidelines while reducing the time to the hospital, "said the company.

This will be an opportunity for the insurer to further position its service in charge of the organization of medical care, Axa Mansard Health, a health risk coverage activity which functions more as an intermediary between potential care seekers of health and medical services. Thus, from their homes, people eligible for this opportunity can go to a hospital virtually, and meet a doctor for a consultation.

The communication does not indicate what to do in the event that clinical examinations are required. It focuses on the fact that clients will save fundamental time in the health care process by avoiding at least long waits in hospitals, because of the social distancing directives which can slow the rate of consultation.




Axa Mansard had a mixed 2019. Revenues from its earned premiums reached 41.5 billion naira, up 27.15% compared to that of 2018. Its medical care delivery sector particularly contributed, with a total of 15.6 billion nairas of revenue collected, but higher claims charges diluted its net margin, which increased only modestly by 7% on an annual comparison.
