Gov't should seek funds for COVID-19 testing - FDC

Hassan Kaps Fungaroo, the party's mobiliser for the northern region, said it is unbelievable that the government can even think of charging people for the test.

The Forum for Democratic Change party in its weekly press conference queried the new path by the Government.

Hassan Kaps Fungaroo, the party's mobiliser for the northern region, said it is unbelievable that the government can even think of charging people for the test.

Fungaroo proposed that government seeks funds and takes the sole responsibility of testing and treating, on top of enforcing the Standard Operating Procedures.

"Testing, isolation and treatment are measures that all governments have employed everywhere, to curtail the pandemic," he noted.

He said the people who test are not the beneficiaries of the testing, but the public because that is how victims are identified and isolated.

 "This move by the Government is an indication that it has lost the fight against COVID-19. If some people already feared to test when it was still free, what will the situation be like when you start charging," he noted.
