REPORT: Introducing COVID-19 Take a look at Package Merchandising Machines in Main Cities
Major cities – including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, and Dallas – are working to bring COVID-19 tests to their homes on vending machines as early as this month.
Health care company Wellness 4 Humanity has these vending machines with COVID-19 test kits for $ 139 each, according to the New York Post. This price includes a prepaid FedEx shipping label with results in 48 hours.
The devices will deliver “Emergency Saliva Tests with Authorized Rapid Antigen and Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)” with an accuracy of 99%.
Lian Nguyen Pham, Co-Founder and CEO of Wellness 4 Humanity, says:
These vending machines are a major milestone in making it easier for Americans to access fast, high-precision COVID-19 testing. We’ve seen similar vending machines in densely populated, high-traffic areas of Hong Kong and the UK to help contain the spread of the virus, and given the surge in cases the US is currently living in, we hope to be able to roll out our vending machines so soon as possible.
