Bengal Govt To Set Up Centres For Testing Virus


Kolkata: The Bengal Government is going to set up centres for testing of viruses in collaboration with the National Institute of Virology, Pune.

The decision was taken after it was found that cases of acute encephalitis went down due to effective testing of the blood samples sent to national institutes like National Institute of Virology, Pune, but reports from which places take three to four days to reach hospitals in the state.

With the setting up of the centres here, the State Government will get reports of blood samples of affected persons within 24 hours.
