Ogun State Become First State In Africa To Launched COVID 19 Mobile Laboratory

Ogun State has launched Africa’s very first COVID-19 mobile laboratory.

The lab which has the capacity to carry out up to 400 tests a day is contained in a 40ft container and has been set up within the grounds of the intended 250 bed hospital in Abeokuta.

It provides a unique plug and play feature and is fully equipped with all necessary instruments and biosafety materials to support COVID-19 testing while ensuring the safety of the workforce.

Solar panels have also been installed to utilise solar energy as an alternative source of power.

We express our gratitude to 54gene and FCMB, as well as the supporting partners:

Argentil Capital Partners, Arnergy Solar Limited, Tempohousing Nigeria and Wild fusion for their work in making this a reality for Ogun State.
