Meanwhile, The President in his televised message on the country’s response and progress in managing the crisis disclosed that, deliberate measures have been taken to enhance capacities of existing testing facilities in Accra and Kumasi, the veterinary lab in Sekondi Takoradi, and other facilities across the country.

“The enhancement of our capacity to test has been made possible by the dedication of the expanded teams at Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research, the Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research, and the National Public Health Reference Laboratory. Further, we are making significant investments in the laboratories at the Veterinary Laboratory, Accra, the Centre for Scientific and Industrial Research Laboratory, Accra, the Police Hospital, the 37 Military Hospitals, the University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ho, the Veterinary Services Department in Sekondi-Takoradi, the Public Health Laboratory in Tamale, the War Memorial Hospital in Navrongo and the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital, so they can also use PCR Technology” he noted.

President Nana Addo added that; “We (government) are recalibrating one hundred (100) Regional and District Tuberculosis Gene Expert Laboratories across the country, to help ensure that we have a minimum situation of one testing centre per region”

This comes after a call by the Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists on government, to see to the converting of some 135 reference laboratories into COVID 19 testing facilities to scale up testing across the country.
