Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari has lamented that those in charge of coronavirus issue in the State used to travel for about 12 hours after collecting samples of suspected patients for test in the laboratory at Abuja.
Governor Masari, who received the Director General of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu
in audience in his office at Government House, Katsina today, April 22, requested immediate establishment of a testing centre in the State to ensure speedy confirmation of samples of suspected cases.
”Availability of a testing centre here will actually help in reducing the duration and the stress we are presently going through.
“Samples from Katsina had to reach Abuja in 24 hours otherwise it would not be tested.”
