Gonoshasthaya Kendra (GK) has said that the news of testing Covid-19 patients in several parts of the country using its GR Covid-19 Rapid Dot Blot Antibody test kits is a complete lie.
"We think this is a conspiracy against the Gonoshasthaya Kendra's invention of the kits amid the great disaster in the world as well as in Bangladesh caused by Covid-19. We strongly protest this news," said a press release of the organisation on Sunday.
The government had not approved the kit as yet, it was not in the market and the kits were not given to any other organisation except Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University for testing and trial, said the press release.
Gonoshasthaya Kendra will take legal action against Shahabuddin Medical College Hospital.
"We respect the government's rules and guidelines regarding antibody tests and kits," said the press release.
