RT-PCR lab in every district imperative: GM Quader

Jatiya Party chairman GM Quader on Thursday said people are going through serious sufferings amid the rise in coronavirus infections for lack of testing facilities in every district.


“The testing capacity has not enhanced at the rate at which corona infections have been. So, many people having the symptoms of the virus are being harassed while undergoing tests,” he said.


In a video message, he further said, “Although corona testing facilities are available in the capital and divisional cities, the general people are being deprived of such facilities at the district level. So, it has now become imperative to set up RT-PCR labs in every district.”


GM Quader said it now takes 10 to 15 days to get the corona test results due to the poor testing capacity of the country. “It’s seen, the infected persons transmit the virus among many other people before receiving the test results.”


He said the infected people will get proper treatment and the number of infections will be reduced if the testing capacity is increased further and extended to the district level.
