Dimapur, May 26 (EMN): In what will supplement the Covid-19 walk-in sample kiosk (WISK) or sample collection booth already in place at the District Hospital, Mon, the district Covid-19 task force has launched a mobile van for collection of the novel coronavirus suspected samples.

“Considering the logistics and time involved in collecting the nasal throat swabs, the mobile sample collection van ensures that people do not have to travel to the Covid-19 hospital to have their sample collected,” informed an update received on Tuesday.

It went on to state that the mobile sample collection van will help guarantee the safety of the healthcare workers and reduces the use of PPE as the doctor and lab technician collecting the sample from inside the mobile van do not have to wear protective gear.
