GOA: After starting antigen testing for air passengers five days ago, the facility is now made available at district hospitals in North and South Goa and sub-district hospitals of Chicalim and Ponda.
Secretary health Nila Mohanan said the health department received supply of 20,000 antigen test kits on Thursday afternoon and new testing facilities have started at district and sub district hospitals on Friday. “Very soon the facility will be extended to primary health centres and community health centres,” she said.
“In a new milestone we are happy to announce the launch of an apheresis machine at GMC,” Rane said during his visit to Goa Medical College (GMC) and Hospital, Bambolim where the machine has been installed. An apheresis machine receives blood from a donor’s body and separates it into various components.
