Spark Bio COVID-19 Response
This project was created after recognizing the importance of testing in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and listening to stories of Americans who were being denied COVID-19 due to a lack of capacity.
Being healthcare professionals, we recognized the challenges facing the public, laboratories and healthcare workers during these challenging times. We wanted to do our part to help:
- Increase the testing capacity in the US
- Enable more people to get tested
- Alert the public with accurate information
- Promote best self-isolation practices
- Enable individuals to engage in contact tracing practices.
There are good reasons why testing is reserved for high-risk communities at the moment, but we want to make sure that the moment testing becomes more widely available that people who suspect they have COVID-19 are able to get tested and receive appropriate treatment from a healthcare professional. In the meantime, we must do our part to keep ourselves safe as well as other people by self-isolating and preventing the spread from going on to other people.
This project is run by volunteers and the services that numerous sponsors have provided in-kind. If you would like to also help us on our mission to increase the COVID-19 testing capacity in the US please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
