KINGSTOWN– PAHO is assisting with the training of local lab technicians in conducting PCR tests. 10 persons are being trained.
The training is being done at a facility that has been identified as a special testing site.
A forklift is expected to lift a biological safety cabinet into place this morning. The reused schedule would allow the lab to start running tests on samples by this weekend and to commence full-blown testing by Monday.
