GeneXpert Test Kits for Hela

Exxon Mobil PNG (EMPNG) recently donated GeneXpert testing kits to help boost local COVID-19 testing capabilities across Hela Province.

The kits will help medical staff at Tari Hospital and the Hela Provincial Health Authority to test and diagnose COVID-19 cases to reduce the spread of the virus.

Last year Tari Hospital received medical oxygen cylinders, and hospital beds. Later this year it stands to receive laboratory equipment and vehicles.
