Hyundai Motor India handed over COVID-19 advanced diagnostic testing kits to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) on Thursday (16).
The diagnostic kits worth Rs four million have been imported from South Korea and offer high levels of accuracy, catering to the testing requirements of over 25, 000 individuals, a company statement said.
“These highly accurate diagnostic kits can help the government scale up testing efforts in affected regions and arrest the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in India,” HMIL managing director and chief executive officer SS Kim said.
The South Korean automaker has already donated Rs 50 million to Tamil Nadu chief minister relief fund.
It has also augmented the supply of ventilators and other respiratory aids such as the in-house developed Ambu Bag Actuator.
Besides, the company said it is distributing masks and other safety kits to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
