Los Mochis, Sinaloa.- A 50 percent has lowered the request for covid-19 tests in the module of the Sanitary Jurisdiction 01 based in the city of Los Mochis.This situation could be originating because people who bring the symptoms of the virus are going to the Respiratory Care Module of social security (MARSS) to obtain the results at the moment and obtain a work disability, since they are rapid tests, and in the module of the Sanitary Jurisdiction they are PCR tests and take a few days to grant the result. “We are doing 15 to 20 tests a day, the demand has gone down, but the incidence of the disease continues to rise. The demand has dropped because people prefer a rapid test, an antigenic test to quickly get the result,” said Victor Manuel Lim Zavala.The head of Sanitary Jurisdiction 01 commented that previously there were about 40 tests a day.
