The Airport Health Laboratory (AHL) is a state-of-the-art testing facility located at SSR International Airport and which started its operations in October 2020. To date, the AHL has completed more than 24,000 tests. Since the resurgence of local Covid-19 cases, a few weeks ago, some 16,000 tests were completed during the month of March 2021 alone.
The laboratory which works 24/7, uses high-tech testing equipment and is supported by specially designed ICT tools. The overall facility is manned by a dedicated team of highly qualified professionals. All of which gives the AHL the capacity to analyse more than 2500 samples daily. The AHL thus proves to be a key component of the national fight against the pandemic in Mauritius.
