Detecting and combating epidemics in Africa
Under the project name “LABPLUS AFRIKA”, the IVECO Daily mobile laboratories will soon leave for Africa, where will be deployed in hard-to-reach areas in Kenya. There, it will be part of a fleet of mobile laboratory platforms intended to detect, combat and prevent future epidemics. In addition, local partners, such as academic institutions, will be trained on site so that they can eventually manage the laboratory themselves. A copy has already been used in Senegal, it was deployed in Touba, the second most major city in the country. It has detected 10% of cases of covid in the country.
