Walk-in kiosk for swab collection ready in Kochi

Kochi, April 7 (IANS) A walk-in kiosk for swab collection for Covid-19 is now ready in Kochi, a health official said on Tuesday.

“It was launched on Monday and we were busy setting it up for the past couple of days. This facility has been developed as a preparatory step for community testing, if the need arises. It can be carried from one place to another, depending on the need. Once swabs are collected, they would be sent to the testing centre, which will open in a few days,” said the health official.
