    ChiredziTwelve Gonarezhou Conservation Trust employees who tested positive for Covid-19 on the Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) kits has tested negative following further tests on the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests done at a private laboratory in Chiredzi, a senior health official has confirmed.
    The 12 were among 62 employees from Gonarezhou who went to Lancet Laboratory for pre-industrial tests on Monday.
    Further tests for the 12 were done on Tuesday at the same laboratory using PCR which is Gold Standard Test and the results came back negative yesterday.
    RDT is less accurate in terms of detecting the presence of Covid-19 virus compared to the Gold Standard Test (PCR) which has a success rate of 70%.#MasvingoMirror#
