The Governor of the State of Taraba, Darius Ishaku, has commissioned a remodeled GeneXpert Laboratory Center for COVID-19 testing in the state.
The testing center is located within the specialized state hospital.
Ishaku, who spoke during the commissioning of the test center, said the provision of the laboratory was in fulfillment of its promise during his visit to one of the isolation centers in the state a few months ago.
He was represented by his alternate, Haruna Manu.
He also said that sample collection centers would be opened in some areas of the state’s local government for suspected cases.
According to him, the sample collection centers will be located in the three senatorial zones.
“The test center facility adds to the number of treatment facilities the state has, increasing the capacity to manage COVID-19 in the state,” Ishaku added.
