The National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology said that they have successfully cultured and isolated a new strain of corona virus (nCoV) in the laboratory, facilitating rapid testing of nCoV infection and suspected cases.

 

With this, every day in Vietnam will be able to test thousands of specimens in case of need. Currently, Vietnam has more than 1,000 people returning from China and nearly 500 people in close contact with people infected with nCoV are isolated, monitored and awaited test results.

According to Mr. Dang Duc Anh - Director of the Central Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology, the virus was isolated from samples taken from infected patients in Vietnam. Only research institutions with a background in equipment and experience are able to isolate the virus.

Previously, Vietnam has isolated the H5N1 avian influenza virus and also developed avian influenza vaccines for humans.

The Ministry of Health said that this would be a premise for the research and development of corona virus vaccines in the future, as well as to help make more effective preventive measures.

The Ministry of Health said that until now, Vietnam still ensures to provide enough biological products for testing.

At the same time, the Ministry of Health said the Ministry of Science and Technology had ordered a group of scientists in the country to research and produce a corona virus test kit within two weeks.

 

According to the Ministry of Health, when this kit is available, the time to perform and have corona virus test results in Vietnam will be equi

According to the Ministry of Health, when this kit is available, the time to perform and have corona virus test results in Vietnam will be equivalent to China currently about 2 hours (counting the time of testing) and less than 4 hours if including preparation time.

 

This is the fastest time to test for coronavirus among 28 countries and territories to date.

 

According to Mr. Nguyen Thanh Long, Deputy Minister of Health, currently laboratories are using 2 methods of testing for corona virus, with testing time of 4 - 9.5 hours depending on the type. Both methods detect corona virus if the person has been infected (even if the disease is in an incubation period).

Important is the sampling method. If the throat swab or nose swab sample is taken correctly, the test results will be accurate within the above time.

Having the test kits, in addition to reducing the time for testing, corona virus testing will also have instructions and be performed in many health facilities.
