Local Test kits to be purchased to meet rising PCR demand

A proposal presented by the Minister of Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi to purchase test kits and other equipment required to increase the number of PCR tests being carried out in the country was approved by the Cabinet yesterday (03).

This proposal has been presented considering the demand for the increase in daily PCR tests within Sri Lanka, especially with the identification of new variants within the country.

The daily demand for PCR tests in Government laboratories has increased to 20,000, the Health Minister had pointed out.
