Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, an estimated 1.3 Million sports jobs have been put on hold or even erased. To help restart the return of in-person sports events, one company is said to have developed a Covid-19 testing method that can provide results within five minutes.
Level 44 Holdings, an Atlanta-based company, recently obtained approval for one of very few Covid-19 testing methods of its kind. This method would allow medical professionals conducting the test to see test results within five minutes of initiating it.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NFL alone is projected to lose over US$5 billion by the end of the season — this includes ticket sales, sponsors, merchandise sales, parking, and concessions, to name a few.
Bringing the sports industry back will not only put billions of dollars back into the economy, but it will also help out the neighborhoods where stadia and venues are situated. Resuming in-person events for professional sports will not only open up over 45 venues and arenas, but they will also provide tens of millions of sports fans a sense of normalcy again.
Level 44 Holdings claims it has the staff, resources and protocol in place to get all major sports arenas and stadiums up and running ‘virtually overnight’. The team consists of leading experts in the medical field equipped to lead the charge in fighting a medical and economic pandemic. They propose a process that trickles down to re-boosting the economy from the top to the bottom – all at a price point and process cheaper and more effective than current testing methods.
