The Chattogram Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) is setting up four booths in Chattogram Medical College Hospital (CMCH) for Covid-19 sample collection.
President of CCCI Mahbubul Alam said work of setting up booths at the CMCH will start from tomorrow.
"Several police stations in Chattogram metropolis are under coronavirus red zone. In this situation, it is most important to collect more samples and create opportunities for testing," he said.
Three more booths will be set up upon getting permission, he added.
Officially, Covid-19 tests are being carried out at various institutions including General Hospital, Chattogram Medical College Hospital and Bangladesh Institute of Tropical and Infectious Diseases.
However, the test is not sufficient compared to the large population.
