Mobile van for sample collection launched at Mon

Mon DTF for Covid 19 launched Mobile Van for collection of Covid 19 samples 1Dimapur, May 27: The Mon District COVID-19 Task Force has launched a mobile van for collection of COVID-19 samples. Considering the logistics and time involved in collecting the nasal throat swabs, the mobile sample collection van ensures that people do not have to travel to the COVID-19 Hospital to have their sample collected.
The mobile sample collection van helps guarantee the safety of the health workers and reduces the use of PPEs as the doctor/lab technician collecting the sample from inside the mobile van do not have to wear PPEs, said a DIPR report.
This initiative will supplement the COVID-19 walk-in Sample Kiosk (WISK)/ Sample Collection Booth already in place at the District Hospital, Mon. (Page News Service)
