CHATTOGRAM: Corona sample testing at Chittagong University (CU) is going to be delayed due to ‘faulty’ test kits sent by the Health Department.

The university authority sent the test kits back to the department on Thursday.

CU Proctor Professor SM Monirul Hasan said they received around 200 samples collected from the adjoning upazilas of the university.

When tested on Wednesday, the kits showed similar results for all the samples creating confusions among the peosons concerned, he said.

“Later, we sent the test kits back to the authority and they will exchange those with fresh ones,” he added.
