Number of tests have decreased in the last few days, said the minister

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday urged the authorities concerned to further increase the number of coronavirus sample tests.

“We have observed that the number of Covid-19 sample tests dwindled in the last couple of days. But the rate of virus infection is higher considering the tested samples,” he told a virtual press briefing on contemporary affairs from his official residence.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said one-fourth of the tested Covid-19 samples are now being found positive, which may contribute to the rapid spread of the virus.

“That’s why I request the authorities concerned to extend the sample testing further. I expect that the Health Department would take effective initiatives to supply necessary materials, according to the capabilities of the testing labs, for the coronavirus sample test,” he added.
