PHASE Scientific and Vattanac Group jointly donated 100,000 INDICAID COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test Kits to the Royal Government of Cambodia to support their effort to fight against the pandemic in the country. Seng Teang, Secretary of State in the Office of the Prime Minister attended the handover ceremony. Prime Minister Hun Sen wrote a Thank-You letter to Ricky Chiu, the founder and CEO of PHASE Scientific expressing his appreciation for his and his company’s generosity and contribution. INDICAID Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Test Kit has gained approval from Cambodia’s Ministry of Health for commercialization in June, 2021 as part of the country’s efforts in controlling recent spikes of COVID-19 cases in the region.
In addition, Phase Scientific donated 10,000 test kits to the HKCSS to help back care home visitation costs for low income families.
In response to the epidemic, homes for the elderly and homes for the disabled have been banned from visits except for compassionate reasons starting from the middle of last year. In the second quarter of this year, the government began to implement a limited visit arrangement. The latest arrangement is that regardless of whether the visitor has completed the COVID-19 vaccination or not, as long as the interviewed resident has not completed the vaccination, the visitor must provide the COVID-19 nucleic acid test negative within 72 hours before the visit. The results prove that if the visitor has completed the vaccination, he can also choose to provide a proof of negative result of the antigen rapid test within 24 hours.
In order to assist the family members of the residents to visit smoothly, Xiangda Biotechnology International Co., Ltd. (Xianda Biotechnology) cooperated with the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) to donate 10,000 copies of INDICAID® Test agent) to the homes to support the family members of the grassroots residents to visit their families in the homes through the use of rapid tests.
The HKCSS emphasized that the starting point of the plan is to trust and facilitate the families of residents, and aims to encourage the families of residents in need to visit. Therefore, the staff of the residential institutions will not examine or review the income certificates of the residents (such as bank account records, etc.). ). If the family members of the residents deliberately conceal or omit reporting, the HKCSS reserves the right to investigate the provision of false information
