Covid-19 tests will be conducted

Covid-19 tests to be conducted in Binh Thuan

BTO- Binh Thuan General Hospital on March 19 received a new machine to take tests for SARS-Covi-2 virus that causes acute pneumonia (Covid-19).

SARS-Covi-2 test machine at laboratory of Binh Thuan General Hospital

The device, which is a Real-time Polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) machine, is donated by a local enterprise in support of Binh Thuan province to do tests for SARS-Covi-2 virus. The tests will help shorten the time of detection and implementation of preventive measures in the province. Previously,  Binh Thuan  had to send samples to Pasteur Institute in Nha Trang or Ho Chi Minh City for testing, and the results took at least one day.

Technique training will be quickly carried out for staffs of the hospital’s laboratory  in order to put the machine into operation.
