ABSTRACT

ELC Enhancing Detection: RMI Testing Plan   [open pdf - 511KB]

From the Document: "The population of the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) is distributed among 29 Atolls with the majority (~27,000) in the Capital City on Majuro Atoll and another 10,000 in Ebeye in Kwajalein Atoll with the remainder (~8,000) spread throughout the far-flung smaller atolls. The predominant race/ethnicity is Marshallese (95%) with some other Asian/Pacific Islanders (Chinese, Kiribati, etc) and about 2% Caucasians (US, Australia, etc). Thus most of the population is considered 'at risk', especially because the prevalence of diabetes mellitus is 25%. SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] testing is available in the two cities, Majuro and Ebeye. Currently there are no cases of SARS-CoV-2 detected in RMI."
