Entornointeligente.com /   The Parliamentary Opposition wants Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton to provide an explanation for the decline in the number of PCR tests conducted daily for the coronavirus.   Spokesman on Health Dr. Morais Guy, who raised the issue in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, said the number of daily tests had declined from more than 2,000, prior to the tightening of COVID-19 measures, to as low as 452 on Monday.    Dr. Guy said this requires an explanation, as Jamaicans may have a false sense of security about infection levels.   However, he warned that with the positivity rates hovering at 20%, Jamaica is still falling short of the World Health Organization’s standard, which suggests “in a high positivity rate environment, you should be testing 10 to 30 times the numbers of tests as per positive test that you’re getting.”   Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton said several factors including the long holiday period as well as the focus on the vaccination blitz contributed to low testing.    He said he will conduct an assessment to ascertain why COVID-19 tests have been fluctuating.   However, he insisted that “the opportunities for testing have improved in terms of the public facilities around the country.”
