We Send Test Results To States And Not Individuals, Says NCDC
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has revealed its role as a centre as the nation strives to combat and curb the outbreak of diseases in the country.
This is coming barely 24 hours after Chairman of DAAR Communications Plc, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr said he was discharged having contracted COVID-19 earlier without seeing his test result.
The NCDC stated that it coordinates the communication of results between testing laboratories and States, who then communicate with individuals.
This statement was made in a tweet which served as a response to Dokpesi Jnr’s disclosure.
NCDC’s tweet read;
It is important to emphasise that the NCDC does not provide results to individuals.
Our role as the national public health institute is to coordinate the communication of results between testing laboratories and States, who then communicate with individuals.
