Average of 1785 testing per day The Ministry for Health makes 1785 coronavirus tests per day in its bid to rid the disease.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong said in the midst of last year’s coronavirus outbreak, there were  776 tests in the entire month of April.

Speaking during the press conference, Dr. Fong said that before the outbreak testings had grown to about 250 to 300 per day.

He said before the temporary shutdown of the Fiji Centre for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention over the weekend they were testing at an average of 1785 samples per day.

“I mentioned that we had run more than 2,500 tests since yesterday, I want to put our current testing capacity in perspective for everyone,” he said.

“In the midst of last year’s coronavirus outbreak, they ran 776 tests in the entire month of April, in other words, something like 25 tests per day.

Before the outbreak our testing had grown to about 300 per day and then we were testing at an average of 1785 samples per day before the temporary shutdown of the Centre,” he said.

He said this puts the daily testing rate on par with the current rate of testing in Australia and New Zealand, one to three per 1000 population per day.

“Relative to our population, that puts our daily testing rate on par with the current rate of testing in Australia and New Zealand, one to three per 1000 population per day,” he said.

“We have plans to expand our testing further much further. We have 28 new Genexpert machines received yesterday that are being deployed nationwide.

 “Assuming they run 24/7, our total testing capacity will rise to at least 3,000 tests per day,” he said.

He said they will be sending the backlog of swabs to a private lab in Australia on Thursday, with the results expected by this weekend.
