A suspected case of #COVID19 has been spotted in Jomotshangkha, Samdrup Jongkhar. The respiratory tract sample (throat swabs/sputum) is currently being transported to Mongar COVID-19 testing center for COVID-19 PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test.

People have been asked to refrain from moving out of Jomotshangkha until the results are out so as to avoid further community transmission, in case the suspected case comes out positive.

The results will be declared later today or tomorrow morning.
