BOC Group Life Assurance Company Limited (‘BOC Life’) partners with EC Healthcare (HKEx: 2138) in providing St. James' Settlement with rapid antigen test (‘RAT’) kits and Sinovac vaccination service, timely meeting their needs in fighting against the virus while helping them navigate the difficult times together.

Valued at HK$500,000, the RAT kits donated to St. James’ Settlement are all European Union certified with accuracy rate of over 97%.

In response to the community’s pressing needs for RAT kits amid the fifth wave of the pandemic, we are pleased to partner with EC Healthcare again to have timely contributed to this social cause in serving the urgent anti-pandemic needs.”

The Group is delighted to collaborate with BOC Life in an effort to drive the community closer to the resumption of normal daily lives.”
