The Northern Regional Health Directorate says it is random testing residents for covid-19 as part of efforts to contain the spread of the pandemic in the region.

The Regional Director of Health, Dr. John Eleeza, disclosed this in an interview with GBC in Tamale on Tuesday.

He said the region now has two testing centers and therefore can handle such random testing to determine the extent of community spread.

“Since we have a testing center here, we have decided to undertake random testing of residents. For instance we can decide to test journalists in the region or food vendors, this will enable us determine the extent of community infections,” he explained.

The Northern Region now has 36 confirmed cases of covid-19.

The region has also recorded 13 recoveries with one confirmed death.
