Verna industry moots testing facility within industrial estate

Concerned over the surge in the covid positive cases in the industrial estate, the verna Industries Association is in talks with the state government to set up a dedicated Covid testing laboratory within the industrial estate. The proposed facility is expected to ease the burden on the testing laboratory at the South Goa district hospital, and also ensure faster availability of results.
President of Goa Small industries association Damodar Kochkar said that the proposal has received a favourable response from the government and hoped that the facility would soon be set up.

“As this testing laboratory will be exclusively for the employees of the Verna Industrial estate, the reports will be made available soon, thereby reducing the time an industrial worker whose throat swab sample has been drawn is subjected to isolation,” Kochkar said. “We are ready to cooperate with the government, even in terms of sponsoring the machine.”

As per protocol, every employee whose swab sample is drawn is asked to stay in home quarantine or an isolation facility until his test report is obtained. The estate houses over 400 units employing nearly 40,000 workers. The News 24 Goa.
