Covid-19 / Fogo: Regional Hospital starts performing PCR tests starting today

São Filipe, Sep 16 (Inforpress) – The São Francisco Assis regional hospital’s laboratory starts to perform PCR tests (Polymerase Chain Reaction), at COVID-19, starting on Tuesday with analysis of the first four samples, one of which was positive.

“Today is an important day and a milestone for the Health Region and the structures taking into account the improvement in the response capacity, specifically the ability to perform local PCR tests”, said the director of the São Francisco Assis regional hospital, Evandro Monteiro.

According to the official, the realization of this demand involved everyone and is a “big step in technical terms” and requires many things from an organizational point of view.

Evandro Monteiro stated that the local performance of PCR tests allows to do an investigative work, in a second phase, in terms of structure, to decongest some sectors because it quickly has the result.
