Long wait ahead for CJD test results

17 April 2015

Minister for Health Ahmet Gulle has said that it will take a month for the CJD or so called ‘mad cow disease’ test results to come back.

Apparently testing for Creutzfeld-Jacob disease (CJD) cannot be carried out in Turkey and the biopsy will have to be carried out in either the UK or the US.

One person has died and another remains critically ill in Nicosia State Hospital, suspected of having CJD.
