The Kwara State government has announced that COVID-19 testing center would be available in the state any moment from now, noting that the lack of testing center has been a major setback in the fight against the deadly coronavirus.
This announcement was made in a statement signed by Rafiu Ajakaye, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, in Ilorin, today.
It reads: “Kwara State now has a COV-2 testing centre which would be fully operational very soon. Further details would be made public later. The government commends the NCDC for its support and the health workers for their immeasurable sacrifice.
“The lack of a testing centre had no doubt been a major setback. With this centre, Kwara joins the few states with the capabilities to run tests for the virus and some other infectious diseases.
“This major breakthrough has been made possible with the efforts of Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq who has pulled all the strings and made the necessary investments to actualise the dream.”
