“Pandemics and plagues have a way of shifting the course of history, and not always in a manner immediately evident to the survivors,” writes Canadian anthropologist Wade Davis in Rolling Stone Magazine.
“COVID-19 didn’t lay America low,” continued Davis, “it simply revealed what had long been forsaken…a country that once turned out fighter planes by the hour could not manage to produce the paper masks or cotton swabs essential for tracking the disease”.
America is not the only country struggling to contain COVID-19.
Cases in Egypt, Pakistan, Brazil, Peru, Nigeria, Russia and India are also surging.
On August 12, 2020 Predictmedix (PMED.C) announced that it will be deploying its COVID-19 screening technology along with alcohol and impairment screening technology at Indian Oil Corporation (IOC.NS) – an Indian Public Sector Undertaking FORTUNE 500 company.
India has an underfunded medical systems, making traditional COVID-19 testing financially challenging.
Predictmedix’s COVID-19 screening technology is designed to mass screen for symptomatic individuals to help reduce the risk of transmission in places which have a large movement of people.
