NEW PCR FOR FOREIGN TRAVELLERS

The national minister of health Elizabeth Acuie Yol has assigned a separate Polymerase Chain Reactor PCR machine to test covid-19 samples from foreign travelers at the public health laboratory in Juba. The move came as an increased number of travelers who overwhelmed the first PCR used for overall Covid-19 used in the main lab at the Public Health Operations Centre. The minister also inspected the renovated Dr John Garang Infectious Disease Unit behind the PHL and allocated one special room to be used as a new testing lab for all travelers. The minister advised the travelers to cooperate with the health workers to make sure the Centre runs smoothly and serve the need for everyone
