While the rest of the world are trying figure out a practical way of combating the novel corona virus, Senegal has miraculously developed a covid19 test kit that cost approximately $1. Thats right! You read well, $1.
This is in line with their strategy of testing their total population and fishing out those who are infected. The test kit is conducting by taking blood and saliva samples of patients and due to its low cost of production there is plenty of kits to go round.
They’ve also created a ventilator that cost approximately $60 through the aid of 3d printing. It interesting to not that the average ventilator cost $15000.
Senegal has only 2 casualties from their over 600 cases and they’ve used a combinaton of antimalarial drugs to combat this illness.
Kudos to Senegal
