WESTERN CAPE NEWS - A quicker turnaround time for test results has been achieved as a result of the Western Cape Government’s targeted testing strategy focused on vulnerable groups.
This is according to Western Cape Premier Alan Winde who hosted his weekly digicon on Wednesday 29 July. Winde said through the targeted testing strategy, they have been able to prevent a backlog of tests at the NHLS.
The average turnaround times currently are:
* 46 hours at a clinic
* 41 hours at a Community Development Centre
* 27 hours at a Community Healthcare Centre
* 23 hours at the hospitals
"This turnaround time is allowing our health experts to intervene quicker and provide life-saving treatment where necessary. I want to extend a thank you to the teams at the NHLS and other labs for their contribution to the fight against Covid-19."
