Assistance with the Government of Jamaica’s COVID-19 Response
Category: Opportunity Projects
USD200,000.00 was allocated to this initiative to assist the GoJ to mitigate the impact of the pandemic of COVID-19. The consultation was done with the Ministry of Health to identify areas of need and funds were used to purchase a Purification System and face masks. The purification system significantly reduces the time for the processing of samples from five hours to 25 minutes. In the five hours, the National Laboratory used to process 50 samples, but now with the machine, they are able to do almost 90 samples in 25 minutes.
