Due to the serious conditions of the pandemic, the Orangutan Conservancy has granted emergency funding to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP). The terms of the proposal submitted by SOCP detail use of the funds to be allocated to COVID-19 testing for all staff members to ensure the safety of both staff members and resident orangutans in their care.
This preventative measure is aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 through asymptomatic carriers. The proposal included two separate testing strategies for both of their locations and allocated enough tests until staff are scheduled to receive vaccinations.
