The tourists who want to return to their home areas and Balinese people who need a Covid-19 screening test to ensure their health condition can now use GeNose C-19 as an alternative to the latest screening method.
This service can be found at Drive-Thru Testing Center Sunset Road by Klinik SOS Gatotkaca which has been operating officially since November 2020 which already has an operational recommendation letter from the Health Office.
Director of the SOS Gatotkaca Clinic, Dr. I Gede Ariguna Wijaya, said that his party was ready to serve the GeNose C-19 inspection starting on March 23, 2021.
“Starting March 23, 2021, the Covid-19 screening method using the GeNose method is available at our Sunset Road Drive Thru Testing Center at a lower cost than other test alternatives, practically without having to plug in the nose or mouth, and can produce results quickly, and it has a fairly high level of accuracy, “said Dr. Ariguna.
The Director-General of Civil Aviation Novie Riyanto said that starting from April 2021 GeNose would be an option that could be used for travel conditions, including for air transportation.
“Therefore, we hope that the GeNose C-19 can help provide a more convenient, inexpensive, and practical test option for people who frequently travel on business outside of Bali, as well as for tourists who are on vacation in Bali,” he added.
As quoted from the validation test conducted by the UGM Research Team, the conclusion is that GeNose has an accuracy of up to 97 percent, and already has a distribution permit from the Indonesian Ministry of Health.
Based on the explanation from a member of the UGM Research Team, Dian Kesumapramudya Nurputra, GeNose detects patterns of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) or volatile organic compounds in a person’s breath and can detect Covid-19 in less than 2 minutes.
Dr. Ariguna also added, Covid 19 Screening with the GeNose C-19 method was carried out by Drive-Thru, it is very suitable for those who want to do an examination but feel uncomfortable by striking the nose, and you do not have to get off the vehicle during the inspection process until done.
