Nagamangala: In a span of just 15 days, a testing lab for Covid-19 has been set up in the Adichunchanagiri Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) at B G Nagar in Nagamangala. And this was made possible by Adichunchanagiri mutt seer Dr Nirmalanandanatha, said district incharge minister Dr Narayangowda.

Speaking after inaugurating the lab in the presence of the seer, the district badly needed a testing lab and the seer made it possible in just 15 days. This will rapidly reduce the waiting time for the results.

Earlier, the test reports would take at least two days. But now, the test results will be available in 24 hours. The government is ready to bear the expenses required for testing, he informed.

On the occasion, he appealed to the people to quit smoking to enhance their immunity. He also spoke on privatisation of Mysugar factory.

“I had appealed to the CM not to privatise the factory. Hence, the government has now dropped the idea of privatising the factory,” he said. The government will discuss whether it should take over or should be given on operation and maintenance system.

Earlier, dignitaries planted saplings to mark the occasion.

MLA Suresh Gowda, MLC Appajigowda, medical college principal Dr NJ Shivaramu were present.
