It includes basic hygiene to clinical lab testing certification that helps companies to create a transparent workplace for employees and customers through a privacy-centric, consent-based solution, to resume business operations safely after the COVID-19 pandemic.

A board of infectious disease experts at the University of California, San Francisco, stated that up to 70 percent of the U.S. population could contract COVID-19 in the next 12 to 18 months. Until the vaccine comes out, up to 230 million people need to be tested regularly, to avoid a future outbreak.
