The Quang Nam Centre for Disease Control (CDC) has put into operation the Diagnostic Test for SARS-CoV-2.According to Quang Nam CDC, the Diagnostic Test for SARS-CoV-2 in Quang Nam helps Quang Nam identify the cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection quickly and accurately.
The Diagnostic Test for SARS-CoV-2 in Quang Nam is used by a staff of 5 people who have had a training course of using RT-PCR for testing SARS-CoV-2 in Pasteur Institute (Nha Trang).
Besides, technicians from the districts in the province have also been instructed to take samples and provided with sampling sticks so that they can take samples directly in their localities. Therefore, Quang Nam CDC can test 200 samples a day.
At the same time, there are some samples to be tested at both places, Quang Nam CDC and Pasture Institute to check the accuracy of the machine and the testing.
The number of people with the need of SARS-CoV-2 testing is too high to take samples for testing. Therefore, Quang Nam CDC is now just testing samples taken from those who have symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 or come from the epidemic areas.
