Changi Airport will set up a new and dedicated Covid 19 test lab


The parliament has decided to open a dedicated Covid 19 testing laboratory which will be set up at Changi airport, as a preventive measure because Singapore is planning to open its border for the travellers to revive their air hub.
The laboratory will open in the next few months as Ong Ye Kung said that testing is the new key for unlocking the air travel.
As the coronavirus is not going anytime soon, it is mandatory to set the international travellers before they board the plane, in the same manner as they undergo the security bag checks at the airport.
Ong Ye Kung further stated that all because of the high sensitivity testes, they will be able to filter out the virus right at the borders, even before the traveller boards the place, it will also mitigate the risk of importing the spreading of the virus in Singapore. He also said that they could slowly open the border on a selective basis and gradually end the stay at home notice.
This new laboratory is going to supplement the existing facility that il swabbing around 10,000 people daily.
Singapore is working on different measures, so that it can open the borders like reciprocal green lanes, opening borders unilaterally so that they can boost the aviation sector as it has battered amidst the pandemic. Singapore is increasing their Covid-19 testing capacity, which is why they have also increased the emphasis on the tests for the air travellers.
Singapore is conducting around 27,00 tests every day, which is why testing capacity is just not an issue anymore. Moreover, these efforts will boost the private sector of the company as they will have to work on developing the commercial testing capacity.
Moreover, the testing technology is advancing, which is why the tests are going to be promising and will have quicker turnarounds and also maintain the test sensitivity.
