The ministry of health has stated that the country may not have enough Corona Virus test Kits and PPES as the supply of the items has been affected by the lock down in supplier countries.
Ministry Spokesperson Abel Kabalo has told One Love Radio in an interview that only Europe and China are suppling the items and are also affected by the pandemic hence the scarcity of the items.
DR. Kabalo has however assured that the ministry will ensure that the kits and PPES are available in Covid 19 centers at all times.
He further explained that this is the reason most public health facilities priotise testing people that have Covid 19 symptoms and are contacts to know cases compared to others.
Earlier a member of the public had complained that public health facilities were only testing people that had Covid 19 symptoms due to lack of enough testing kits.
