Karnali province has got another PCR test machine in Chaurjahari municipality of Rukum west.
The machine has been set up at the district ayurveda hospital and is seen as the relief for the adjoining districts of Salyan, Jajarkot, Dolpa along others.
So far there were PCR test machines installed at Province Headquarter in Birendranagar Surkhet.
“This will not only enable quick tests of the possible Covid-19 patients but also has created an environment of relief among the people amid the pandemic crisis and fear,” said Janardan Sharma, the federal parliamentarian of the district.
Quick test results is a must with widespread coronavirus cases in the province, he added.
Karnali province was the only province not affected with the pandemic for quite a long time.
However, since a big portion of the people go to neighboring India as migrant workers, their return with infection drastically increased the number.
