Chaurajahari installing PCR machine
Rukumpaschim: Chaurajahari Municipality here has purchased an RTPCR machine for conducting coronavirus test.
The Municipality bought the machine on its own reasoning that it took a long time to receive reports of the swab sent to other districts as Surkhet, Jumla, and Dang for the test. It was a long wait for those staying in quarantine to receive the result of a swab test for not having a PCR machine at the local level. Even other accessories to set up laboratories have been brought here. Mayor Bishal Sharma informed that the installation of the PCR machine has begun. A team consisting of a biometric engineer, doctors, and laboratory employees who come from Karnali Institute of Health Science were mobilized for the installation of the machine, he added. The health workers and municipality staff would be employed in the laboratory. Mayor Sharma further informed that team of experts was requested to provide training to the health works at local levels and demanded of lab technician for the smooth operation of the laboratory. It is believed that with the installation of the PCR machine and its operation, even the people from neighboring Salyan, Jajarkot and Dolpa would be benefitted from it. The PCR machine was brought here with the initiative of former minister and member of the House of Representatives, Janardan Sharma, according to Mayor Sharma.
