MDX Ventures Completes Its 20,000th Sample Collection for COVID-19 at Drive-Thru Sites in Nevada

MDX Ventures Operates Multiple Collection Sites in Both Southern and Northern Nevada with a Mission to Make Testing Available to All COVID Testing MDX Las Vegas, Nevada, COVID Testing Center - Oral Rinse LAS VEGAS - January 27, 2021 - (Newswire.com) MDX Ventures, a Nevada-based healthcare solutions company, and an extension of MDX Labs, began opening drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites in October 2020. Recognizing that the vast population of Nevada had no access to testing, or faced significant barriers either in time or geography, MDX expanded its reach to support the greater community. MDX Ventures recently collected its 20,000th sample from Nevada donors. From underserved populations in Las Vegas to rural areas of Northern Nevada, and everywhere in between, the company has put the well-being of Nevadans ahead of problematic logistics. "The impact of COVID-19 on Nevada has been devastating. Our simple mission is to be of value and help restart the economy safely," said MDX Ventures founder Dan Briggs. "Thanks to the tremendous support of some great partners, we have been able to offer testing without long wait times and without the pain or inconvenience of an invasive swab." MDX Ventures uses a non-invasive mouthwash for its collection method, called the QuikSal Oral Rinse. Developed as a toxicology test by a high-complexity, CLIA-certified laboratory, this collection method improves safety, comfortability and timeliness. Used by local police departments, urgent cares and national business, MDX has made this available to everyone through its drive-thru locations. "Nasopharyngeal swabs are time-consuming, have a high false-negative rate due to improper collection and are painful and off-putting," said Dr. Phillip Gibbs, Ph.D., the Chief Science officer and biochemist at Clinical Lab Consulting, who developed the patent-pending "Quiksal" collection method. MDX Ventures has committed itself to keeping drive-thru locations open and available to all who need them for as long as the health risk remains.

Kindness Restores Faith in These Challenging Times

As in communities the world over, COVID-19 has brought its share of hardship to Scotland This family team takes part in the work of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers of HAPI Since May, Edinburgh VMs have been carrying out an initiative \u2014 part of a program that Volunteer Ministers take part in around the world. EDINBURGH, Scotland - January 27, 2021 - (Newswire.com) While encouraging friends, neighbors and local merchants to help bring the pandemic under control by complying with protocols, Volunteer Ministers from the Edinburgh Scientology Church, the Hubbard Academy of Personal Independence (HAPI), help brighten the days of those isolated by the lockdown. Since May, Edinburgh VMs have been carrying out an initiative — part of an international Volunteer Ministers program. They have handed out more than 9,000 copies of educational booklets in Edinburgh to help people understand how to protect themselves and others from infection.  They have also been working with local charities to help isolated and vulnerable neighbors. "As a team, we've helped food banks with items they most need and want," posted one of the Volunteer Ministers on the HAPI Facebook page. As soon as the pandemic began, the most effective measures were researched for ensuring the safety of Scientology staff and parishioners, and these were implemented internationally as protocols and made broadly available in 21 languages for anyone to use at the Scientology.org How to Stay Well Prevention Resource Center. Edinburgh Volunteer Ministers have presented copies of these booklets to shops, restaurants and neighbors so they can help keep themselves and their friends and families well. For the holidays, they "answered a shoutout for help from a homeless charity and provided donations to seven Edinburgh care homes and a women's shelter we've helped several times." They knew the holidays tend to heighten the sense of isolation for those down on their luck. And pandemic restrictions prevented care home residents from visiting with children and grandchildren. So to make the season special, they sent gifts to care home and shelter residents. It looks like they created the intended result. "Here's a message from the women's shelter," they posted on their Facebook. "Omg!!!! You guys are unreal!!! Honestly can't believe it! All the staff & girls were absolutely blown away with your Christmas gifts, you literally made their day! You are absolute superstars." What the Volunteer Ministers took away from the experience was the confirmation that kindness is a beautiful thing. And just as their actions brought comfort to those who received their gifts, it brightened the days of the givers. The Church of Scientology Volunteer Ministers program is a religious social service created in the mid-1970s by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. It constitutes one of the world's largest independent relief forces.  CONTACT:mediarelations@churchofscientology.net (323) 960-3500 phone (323) 960-3508 fax Press Release Service by Newswire.com Original Source: Kindness Restores Faith in These Challenging Times
