Logistics firm Agility has launched a new medical supply chain subsidiary company called Global Response Aid (GRA), based in Dubai.
GRA will procure from trusted manufacturers and distribute certified diagnostic, testing, and protective products suitable for use in the fight against COVID-19 to hospitals and companies safely trying to bring their employees back to the workplace. The company will also offer services such as virus contact-tracing with its app.
GRA-sourced products will include ventilators, thermal detection equipment, thermometers, masks, goggles, protective suits, cleaning and sanitation supplies, and test kits – all of which can be used to take pressure off hospital emergency rooms.
The mobile app, developed by GRA, can help to stop the spread of the virus through community-driven contact tracing and alerts powered by users’ time stamps and location inputs.
GRA is also deploying mobile diagnostic testing vehicles and trained teams that can perform COVID-19 testing safely on-site at schools and in workplaces.
