Chief Sanitary Doctor Viktor Lyashko said that Ukraine was increasing the volume of testing for Covid-19. Moreover, according to him, Ukraine has performed more tests over the last two weeks than Poland. Lyashko announced this on his Facebook page.
Thus, according to Lyashko, over 2.1 million PCR and about 1.5 million ELISA tests have been conducted in Ukraine throughout the course of the entire pandemic. At the same time, Ukrainian laboratories perform about 30,000 tests for coronavirus every day.
"Over the past two weeks, Ukraine has conducted more tests than Poland. Thus, in Ukraine - 66.3 per 100 thousand population, in Poland - 47.9," he said.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Ministry of Health is considering the possibility of involving private laboratories in testing for Covid-19 at the expense of the state budget.
"We are considering involving private clinics. We are making now all the calculations. I think we will do it very soon," Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov stated.
