PINABULAANAN NG Department of Health (DOH) at Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) ang balitang namimigay sila umano ng mga expired test kit sa mga laboratoryo.

Sa inilabas na press release ngayong hapon, binigyang-diin ng DOH na ‘maikli lang ang buhay’ ng mga testing kit at epektibo lamang gamitin sa loob ng anim na buwan.

“Test kits are fast-moving stock that have to be utilized immediately, considering that shipment and other laboratory processes already take up part of their already short shelf life. Additionally, machine compatibility, technical issues, low testing referral count, and availability of supplies also contribute to low consumption of the COVID-19 test kits which in turn increase likelihood of expiry before use,” saad sa pahayag.

Dagdag pa nila, lubos nilang pinahahalagan ang stock management ng mga testing laboratory.

“Recognizing the importance of agile stock management for our testing laboratories, the COVID-19 Laboratory Network Project Management Unit (PMU) was created, and a new Information Management System has been launched. The PMU is now developing a more efficient and focused logistics process, while ensuring uninterrupted supply of COVID-19 test kits,” anila.
