Widespread testing is the best way to gain control over COVID-19. Latin America is particularly at risk right now as a key pandemic epicenter. Basic Health International is actively working in El Salvador to reduce the spread by scaling up testing. Support from @fusal_org , provided eight COVID-19 testing booths to the Ministry of Health of El Salvador (MINSAL). These booths use less personal protective equipment (PPE) while collecting specimens for COVID testing. The worldwide PPE shortage especially impacts countries with fewer resources , such as El Salvador.
