Following the launch of a COVID-19 fund that raised $500,00 in donations and the close of a $15 million Series A round, Nigerian health tech company, 54Gene has rolled out
a mobile laboratory in Ogun state, Southwest Nigeria. The mobile lab is its second lab in the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control’s network of coronavirus test centres.
As of press time on April 29, the number of labs in the NCDC’s network was 17 including 54Gene’s labs. As Nigeria continues to battle the virus, its testing capacity has been a
subject of debate. The country had conducted about 12,800 tests compared to South Africa’s 200,000 tests as of April 30.
