About COVID-19 Test
Basic Health International is currently working with a bio-medical engineering company to help validate a new COVID-19 test. This test will be faster and less costly than the current CDC test, making it more feasible for use in low-resource settings. In addition, it will not require the use of DNA/RNA extraction reagents that are currently the limiting factor in making testing more widely available in the United States. BHI has experience screening large populations, and the development of this new test will allow us and other health care professionals to bring testing to vulnerable groups. This new COVID-19 platform will be ideally suited for use in the countries where we work and in the United States, because it is inexpensive, requires little equipment and results will be available in less than an hour. Help us stop this crisis! Please contribute to this venture.
