Swallow Events, UK events and festivals operating group, is partnering with a Swiss healthcare company, Roche, to provide rapid coronavirus testing before the event. According to Swallow Events, the test is designed to ensure the safety of the event attendees and will be taken before the beginning of the events. The testing uses Roche's 15-minute MHRA, CE and PHE approved Covid-19 testing, which has 96.52% sensitivity and 99.68% specificity.
The team of healthcare professionals will be stationed in the pop-up booths, where they will be administering the test at the venue of the designated festival and event, of which the results are to be ready in only 15 minutes. Also, Swallow Events is providing a worldwide shipment to the event organisers through "supply only" option.
Such a partnership between Swallow Events and Roche was developed in order to aid the event organizers to plan a safe large scale event while adhering to "a COVID-19 secure environment" requirements.
