Lubango — Huila’s virology laboratory, set up at Lubango Central Hospital, began on Thursday, diagnosing the COVID-19 pandemic, with six daily tests, following an experiment carried out on Wednesday.
It is the third province to carry out tests for the diagnosis of Covid-19, along with Luanda and Benguela.
According to the general director of the hospital, Maria Lina Antunes, the functionality of the laboratory was done together with a team from the National Institute of Health Research, which validated the space and guided the techniques to make the first tests of Covid-19.
“The equipment is functional. We tested positive samples that gave positive in our equipment and negative samples that confirmed they were negative,” Maria Antunes said.
