農曆新年整體檢測變減少了 諾希山回應了

衛生總監諾希山在臉書表示,由於私人化驗室於上周華人新年假期及周末減少產能,才讓整體檢測減少。

他是回應近期有人批評衛生部沒進行足夠檢測,尤其是在2月12日至14日(即大年初一至初三)期間。

他也表示,23所私人化驗室每天的RT-PCR檢測化驗量為5萬1208,占全國總數66.7%,很多化驗室在華人新年假期時沒有全產能式運作,也有些是接獲的檢測樣本有所減少。

諾希山還強調,衛生部是從公衛實驗室系統追蹤檢測數量和結果,而政府和私人化驗室則負責每日彙報數據。

國內檢測量充足,以世衛建議的「1陽10陰」指導原則來看,大馬在2月15日共通報2176宗確診,但進行的檢測卻達到4萬1895個,為基本標準兩倍之多。

諾希山公布每日檢驗數據。

衛生總監諾希山說明,在農曆新年期間,當局的新冠肺炎檢驗雖然有少,但並沒有不足。

他解釋,我國23所私人實驗室所進行的聚合酶鏈反應檢驗,占我國66.7%,在單日最多可7萬6805次檢驗中占5萬1208宗,當中,許多在農曆新年期間沒有全面營運,或是收到較少的檢驗樣本。

他在臉書以2月15日為例稱,當天有2176宗新冠肺炎確診病例,當局使用聚合酶鏈反應(rtPCR)及快速篩檢(RTK)的檢驗方式,共檢驗了4萬1895人。

根據世界衛生組織的建議,每1宗確診病例應伴隨10次陰性檢驗,使確診數占檢驗數的10%或更低。而根據我國2月15日的確診數2176,則檢驗數只需2萬1760即達標,但實際當天卻檢驗了4萬1895人。

「衛生部從公共衛生化驗室資訊系統(SIMKA)中獲得檢驗數據,公共或私人實驗室每天都會通報確診或陰性檢驗報告。」

Lately, certain quarters have been vocal in criticising MOH for allegedly not doing enough tests to detect and contain the COVID-19 spread, particularly during the recent three-day Chinese New Year (CNY) public holiday and weekend. As 23 private labs make up 66.7 % of the national COVID-19 maximum RT PCR testing capacity (51,208 out of 76,805 RT PCR tests per day), understandably, many were not operating at total capacity or received fewer samples over the CNY weekend. MOH tracks the quantity and results of COVID-19 testing via our SIMKA (Sistem Informasi Makmal Kesihatan Awam) system. The number of individuals tested and the number of cases tested positive or negative for COVID-19 is reported daily by the respective public and private labs.As a general benchmark of a healthcare system that's doing enough testing to pick up all COVID-19 cases, the World Health Organization recommends countries test at the level of ten negative tests to one positive. (Source: WHO, 30 March 2020). It is a guiding principle that you would want a low percentage of tests to come back positive, around 10% or even lower.On 15 February 2021, we reported 2,176 positive COVID-19 cases. Did we had inadequate testing? The total RT PCR and RTK Ag tests done was 41,895 tests, which was more than the 10% (i.e. 21,760 tests) benchmark. Hence, our daily testing on 15 February of 41,895 was almost twice as much and more than enough, despite reduced tests done in private and other non-MOH labs.
