Ukraine will get quick test-systems for the detection of coronavirus. It is planned to deliver them to the laboratories on March 10 as 112 Ukraine reported citing Deputy Minister of Healthcare and Chief Sanitary Inspector Viktor Lyashko.
The quick tests for the detection of coronavirus might be used outside the lab and even near the bed of a diseased. It will be possible to diagnose the coronavirus for a few minutes.
“The biological material is taken and quickly established. 15-20 minutes and we can exclude or confirm the diagnosis. Thus, the quick tests will need further confirmation in the lab but they will determine the further tactics more quickly near the bed of a patient,” Lyashko said.
He added that there are test-systems in Ukraine purchased by Public Health Center in Germany. Moreover, the World Health Organization passed test-systems to Ukraine.
Earlier, the World Health Organization has provided Ukraine with 30 sets of reagents for COVID-19 testing at the country's Virological Reference Laboratory.
Earlier, Deputy Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko stated that not a single case of infection with the new pneumonia coronavirus was recorded in Ukraine, including among citizens evacuated from Wuhan.
