Australia: COVID-19 Test Kits Sent to NATO Operation in Kabul

About 200 COVID-19 test kits were sent to Kabul for use by coalition forces following a spike in coronavirus cases in the area, the Australian government department of defense said.

The ADF’s Joint Task Force (JTF) 633 in the Middle East sent the Australian-supplied GeneXpert kits to NATO’s Operation Resolute Support’s role 2 medical facility in Afghanistan.
This increased the pool of existing GeneXpert kits.

Australian Medical Officer in Kabul Major Eric Richman said the demand for COVID-19 testing had increased because of the spike in cases.

“The GeneXpert testing equipment complements the Australian-supplied BioFire Torch systems in place,” Major Richman said.

The kits arrived at Hamad Karzai International Airport three days after the initial request.
