Unfortunately even with populations being vaccinated, and as the contagious Delta variant continues to circulate, there is clear and mounting evidence that people are coming down with breakthrough COVID-19 infections. Testing, contact tracing is a COVID-19 preventative action that will continue for years to come. Only 29.6% of the world population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and a mere15.2% is fully vaccinated.
As Datametrex further integrates Concierge Medical Consultants Inc's business, the Company sees a significant upside as the pandemic shows signs that patients are moving to healthcare being administered at home.
Given the surge in the need for additional healthcare resources, establishing alternative healthcare options becomes critical.

NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASUREMENTS
The Company has included non-IFRS performance measures throughout this press release, including (a) Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA"); (b) Adjusted EBITDA which is EBITDA adjusted for the gain (loss) on change in fair value of the Company's investment properties and the gain (loss) on change in fair value of derivative instruments; and (c) Book Value per Share which is calculated as equity attributable to Datametrex AI Limited shareholders divided by total common shares outstanding at the end of the reporting period.
