Agility launches Dubai-based Global Response Aid in Covid-19 fight

GRA will be working with manufacturers to source products for governments, health authorities and public institutions, hospitals and clinics and non-government organisations fighting Covid-19.

Kuwait-based logistics giant Agility has launched Global Response Aid (GRA) in Dubai, aimed at helping to escalate the fight against Covid-19.

The company will procure certified diagnostic, testing and protective products as well as offering a contact tracing app and mobile testing used in the detection, treatment and prevention of coronavirus.

GRA will be working with manufacturers to source products for governments, health authorities and public institutions, hospitals and clinics and non-government organisations fighting Covid-19.

This includes ventilators, thermal detection equipment, thermometers, masks, goggles, protective suits, cleaning and sanitation supplies, and new point-of-care test kits.

A mobile phone app developed by GRA helps stop the spread of the virus through community-driven contact tracing and alerts. The app offers users the ability to record, time stamp, and geo-reference test results.

GRA is also deploying mobile diagnostic testing vehicles and trained teams that can perform Covid-19 testing safely on site at schools and workplaces.
