What’s going on with Exposure notification Systems?

The list of countries with a national Exposure Notification App, published by Google LLC is growing longer. Unfortunatley, Australia does not appear on the list but that doesn’t mean there isn’t already options avaliable, even at Google Play, (go figure).

Portum Pass creators, InVitam Inc promise “peace of mind” using their app, designed for all ages.

Greetings to all,

It’s the first day of business, and sadly, the front pages of Australian newspapers reveal soaring Covid19 case numbers. Talk back radio is fired up, squarely focused on public contempt for pathology companies, who they claim have been opening and closing without warning. Mile long queues of cars sit stagnant, engines idling in the hot summer sun, waiting for Covid tests, all over Australia.

No, this isn’t how we wanted to begin the year, so speaking on behalf of TestoChecker, I join with other Australian SMB’s to call on the Australian Government to act swiftly with regard to what can justifiably be called, critical concerns:

  1. We call on the government to move swiftly and make the provision of POC Rapid Antigen test kits more freely available in limited numbers to the Australian public. where needed most;
  2. We join with the growing list of businesses concerned by the reports of price gouging with regard to the sale/supply of Rapid Antigen test kits, in some places, to the highest bidder.
  3. We would like to see an end to bulk purchase stockpiling by individuals in cases where any sensible explanation cannot be proved at the point of sale.

Australians can handle a setback, but what they cannot take is a blind eye to greedy, exploitative and criminal behaviour, at a time when we are at our most vulnerable.

Sincerely,

Guy Saywell
General Manager, TestoChecker

TestoChecker® 2020 Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) ‘General Letter’

Greetings,

We hope this message finds you in good health and if not, that you are receiving the best of care. On behalf of TestoChecker® , I felt compelled to provide some information on how we are dealing with the most recent corona-virus outbreak.

Our aim is to continue to operate in a safe way and whilst we have no expectation to “thrive”, we are confident we can survive.

What are we doing about COVID-19?

TestoChecker® has quickly introduced the Contact-Free-Testing option. Test kits purchased this way can be sent back to the laboratory using a supplied Express Post satchel. Using this option means that dropping the samples off at a collection centre is NOT required.

At present, and following consultation with our trusted, connected laboratory’s, there is no expectation of any significant interruption to the services provided by TestoChecker®

Should this change, we will communicate this to existing Test Kit Holders immediately. In the event that this changes, we will also place a store wide update notice on our website advising of any delays. 

On behalf of TestoChecker®, I wish you well during these difficult times.
