BIRGUNJ: Medics of Birgunj have demanded the government to arrange for the provision of testing coronavirus here citing it’s proximity with the Nepal-Indo border.

After the installation of portable Polymerase Chain Reaction(PCR) machine in the Janakpur based Provincial Hospital, the hospital has started conducting coronavirus  tests there. However, despite being crowded with incoming and outgoing nationals of India and Nepal, Birgunj lacks the most needed facility at this pandemic outbreak.

Narayani Hospital, which takes care of more than 50% of the patients in the province, despite having every prerequisite to offer the COVID-19 test, does not have PCR machines which would let the hospital provide test service to the patients.

“Nearly 50% of the patients of Province 2, receive health care service from the hospital,” Dr. Udaya Narayan Singh, the physician at Narayani Hospital said, “provided we get the device we can test the sample of one person in one hour.”

He regretted that the hospital with such potential and high demand bordering with India had no device to test coronavirus.
