Coronavirus: National Institute for Hygiene (INH) opens new office in Kara, Northern Togo

(Togo First) - As announced a few weeks ago, the National Institute for Hygiene (INH) officially set up an office in Kara (412km from Lomé) last Saturday.

According to the ministry of health, this facility would help proceed to 1,500 daily tests for the Covid-19 virus. This is more than double the actual number of tests currently being performed. Additionally, the new center will enable the immediate processing of samples taken in the northern region without having to send them to Lomé first. 

The new center’s opening, it should be noted, is quite timely given that the number of Covid-19 cases in Togo has almost doubled over the past week, surging from 153 cases on May 10 to 301 cases on May 17.
