KUPANG, www.sinodegmit.or.id, In order to ensure that the activities of GMIT’s Synod Emergency Response Team are free from Covid-19 transmission, all team members and volunteers underwent a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) swab test.
The test was administered to 49 people at the Synod’s guest house complex, which is serving as the Team’s headquarters, on Tuesday, 4 May.
Samples were taken by a team from the Public Health Biomolecular Laboratory under the leadership of Theodor Bolle, M.Sc. According to results announced that evening, all specimens were negative for Covid-19.
The head of the Cyclone Seroja Emergency Response Team, REv. Dr. Mery Kolimon, expressed her thanks for the services of the Biomolecular Lab, which were given free of charge.
