The organisation stated that the training of the last group of 25 HCWs, was carried out on 13 March 2021 making a total of 75 HCWs successfully trained in the past week.
The personnel were trained in quality sample collection and biosafety precautions in handling and processing samples on response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organisation further stated via their Twitter handle that the district would be supplied with more rapid antigen kits and similar trainings would be carried out in the midlands and other provinces.
“With over 80 HCW now trained on how to safely collect and perform the rapid antigen test in the district, we hope to see a rapid increase in testing, tracing and treatment which is part of the PACT initiative led by AfricaCDC.
“Gaps now remaining is to supply the district with more rapid antigen kits and to do the same trainings in other districts in midlands and other provinces.” they said.
