ÀRGENTIL CAPITAL PARTNERS BACKS THE DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 MOBILE TESTING LABORATORIES IN NIGERIA
Àrgentil Group (“Àrgentil”) recently partnered with our portfolio company TEMPOHOUSING NIGERIA LIMITED and other leading firms in their fields including 54gene , Wild Fusion Limited and ARNERGY SOLAR to develop and deploy a mobile COVID-19 testing laboratory with the first being deployed in Ogun State, Nigeria. The mobile lab is environmentally friendly in terms of build and energy supply and will allow testing to be done across the state. The partners are working on additional deployments across different states towards making testing more accessible to people in Nigeria.
This forms part of Àrgentil Group support to a number of initiatives to help with the healthcare emergency created by the COVID-19 pandemic. This has seen us also provide financial resources to pay for a full complement of medical staff at one of the newly built medical facilities in Lagos State as well as support with contributions to help those affected by the economic impact of the pandemic.
