Laboritories that offer covid 19 test home service in ghana- viral swab test


I don’t know about you but Covid-19 had gradually taken over my life. From losing attachments with friends and colleagues because of fear, stigmatization from a sneeze or a cough or just skepticism from exposing yourself by taking public transportation.

Covid Testing has now become one of our basic necessities in our daily life, like eating, sleeping and resting. There are laboratories in Ghana that are certified for testing for COVID-19 by the Ghana Health Service.  

Among these certified laboratories, there are some that give Covid -19 testing at your home for either an individual or a family:
