MyHeritageDNA 66,000 Free DNA Kits to Israel for COVID-19 Testing – DNA Saturdays March 28, 2020

I saw this a few days ago on Jerusalem Post – Genealogy company MyHeritage donates 66,000 swabs to Israel:  https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Genealogy-company-MyHeritage-donates-66000-swabs-to-Israel-622064. Thought it made a great DNA Saturdays post. Per the article, this cost MyHeritageDNA an estimated $10 million in lost revenue, but helps 66,000 Israelis get tested for COVID-19.

The shipment of swabs is expected to arrive in Israel Monday, said Gilad Japhet, CEO and founder of MyHeritage
