Ukraine is about to launch mass production of tests for the Covid-19 coronavirus. This was stated by Deputy Minister of Health and Chief Sanitary Doctor Victor Lyashko on ICTV.

According to Lyashko, the state has the means to buy tests from a domestic manufacturer.

"I think that we will go to mass production in the near future. The state has the means to buy tests from a domestic manufacturer. For enzymes and reagents that are not domestically produced, we will depend on imports," the Deputy Healthcare Minister stated.
