Chief Medical Officer Dr. Roshan Parasram said that initially five labs had applied to the Ministry of Health to test samples of Covid-19.
He said four of the labs were inspected, but one lab withdrew their application.
“Four persons were inspected I believe up to yesterday, there’s one person that withdrew from the process temporarily because they want to supply some additional data and be in a better state of readiness. So they are in the process of compiling those reports which I will send onwards to PAHO and CARPHA.”
He said after the organizations have reviewed the documents, the Ministry of Health, PAHO and CARPHA will analyse the documents and communicate the findings to the institutions.
