Pusat Insani Swab Centre ceases operation: Minister

James Kon

The Pusat Insani Swab Centre in Seria ceased its operation permanently last Saturday, said Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar at the daily press conference yesterday.

He said it is due to the reduction in the number of daily COVID-19 cases and the need to obtain reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) swab tests.

The public requiring RT-PCR swab tests in Belait District can visit the SARI Centre at Suri Seri Begawan Hospital, Kuala Belait or private health clinics that have been given approval to perform the tests, he added.
