27 samples tested in Rangpur

BSS, Rangpur

Testing of 27 samples of suspected coronavirus (COVID-19) infected patients completed at the COVID-19 Laboratory of the Department of Microbiology at Rangpur Medical College (RMC) in the city yesterday.  “We tested samples of 27 suspected COVID-19 patients for the second time yesterday,” Head of the Department of Microbiology of RMC and Superintendent of its COVID-19 Laboratory Associate Professor Dr. Mostakimur Rahman told BSS at 4:30 pm.

Earlier, collected samples of 42 suspected COVID-19 patients from different districts of Rangpur division were tested successfully for the first time last Friday after setting up of the Covid-19 Laboratory at RMC.

 “It took five to six hours to complete the testing process of the collected samples of throat swabs, blood and sweat and cough of suspected patients at the laboratory today,” Dr Rahman said, adding that the results will be sent to the IEDCR later yesterday.

Principal of RMC Professor Dr AKM Nurunnabi Laizu said the COVID-19 Laboratory has been set up after completing installation of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) machine after receiving the same from the IEDCR last week.

 “Later, we started testing samples of suspected COVID-19 infected patients at the laboratory last Friday after getting kits, well plates and other inputs from the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR),” he said.
