Mobile testing facilities

(in reference to The lack of accessible COVID-19 testing)

We could fix this problem by mobile laboratories which are easy to assemble, affordable and able to greatly increase testing capacity. Laboratories are built within shipping containers, then shipped to the designated country. Once in the country, the mobile lab can be transported by trucks to provide testing in areas with less hospitals or areas suffering from a lack of testing. Such laboratories fulfill the requirements of a Biosafety Level II lab which is the standard required to deal with COVID-19 samples, and are equipped with PCR machines to allow for testing. This is a cheap and efficient way of quickly increasing COVID-19 testing, in identifying invisible super-spreaders and in saving lives.
