Datametrex AI Limited (TSXV: DM) (FSE: D4G) (OTC: DTMXF) (the "Company" or "Datametrex") is pleased to share that the Company's Health Canada approved test kit, 1copy™ COVID-19 qPCR Multi Kit ("qPCR kit") is capable of detecting the new strain of COVID-19 that is spreading rampantly throughout the United Kingdom, and likely spreading globally as advised by the manufacturer through a report which the Company has received dated December 25, 2020 from the manufacturer.
The new mutated strain of COVID-19, as publicly reported, is suggested to be 70% more infectious than the first strain. Experts believe the new strain has very likely already made its way from the UK to Canada and the US.
"This new mutated strain of COVID and its potential spread beyond the UK clearly demonstrates the importance of testing travellers. If testing was made mandatory before any travel was permitted, the globe would have a better chance of containing and preventing the spread of COVID-19," said Marshall Gunter, CEO of the Company.
"We believe that the best approach regulators should adopt is a process that tests the entire population, coupled with a track and trace protocol. This will enable the general population to return to a more normalized way of life, flatten the spread, and support vaccinations in effectively combatting the virus," said Andrew Ryu, Chairman of the Company.
The Company is not making any express or implied claims that its product has the ability to eliminate, cure or contain the COVID-19 (or SARS-2 Coronavirus) at this time.
