Director of the Institute, Prof. Abraham Annan, thanked the company for its kind gesture.
Prof. Annan is optimistic that it will go a long way to support the work of his outfit.
He stated that the Institute is at the forefront of testing for coronavirus in Ghana.
According to him, the Institute since its inception has been assigned the front runner role for disease detection in Ghana.
He indicated that the first HIV/AIDS case in Ghana was diagnosed at the Institute, and that it has helped with the testing of other global health pandemics and epidemics.
He stated that the Institute has found out that there are a lot of COVID-19 cases coming out of Ghana and that because of the imported cases, Ghana is now having a lot of community transmission.
He stated that the Institute has upscaled its testing and has had 100s of samples.
Managing Director of Sunda International, Victor Zhang, prayed for the coronavirus pandemic to come to an end quickly.
