Test to detect COVID-19 in Brazil

ROADIS team in Brazil continues to develop campaigns to combat the coronavirus in the state of Bahia; this time through rapid screening tests for road users.

From today, June 8th, the concessionaire VIABAHIA and VITALMED will support SEST SENAT by carrying out quick tests of COVID-19 to about 800 professionals of the transport sector.

The actions will take place between 8 and 12 June in the municipalities of Feira de Santana and Vitória da Conquista.

In addition to these analyses, kits with masks and hydroalcoholic disinfectant gel will be delivered. And important information will be distributed with hygiene and prevention guidelines to try to avoid further infections among this key group for the country (more, if possible, in these times).

VIABAHIA adds to the campaign a medical team that coordinates the identification and attention to the suspicious cases. As in the previous campaign for truck drivers, in case patients with symptoms of COVID-19 are detected, the protocols determined by the Ministry of Health and the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) are immediately activated.
