The Ministry of Health handed over to the branch of National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), in Sabha, a B Cell Receptor (BCR) device, to enable it to conduct testing for the Coronavirus.

Other medical supplies and equipment were also sent for use by the Sabha municipal health service administration. The branch of the NCDC in Sabha explained that the device could diagnose approximately 100 samples in a relatively short time span.

It went on to say that this new addition to its branch would alleviate the difficulty previously encountered by the administration, by having to send its samples to Tripoli for analysis.
