Lukashenka demanded to adjust the testing system for COVID-19
President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that the country needs to rebuild the coronavirus testing system.
“You will develop a system - any testing should be in those laboratories, which will be determined by the Ministry of Health. Especially in Minsk, Natalya Ivanovna (Chairperson of the Council of the Republic and Presidential Envoy for Minsk, Natalya Kochanova). Only those laboratories that you define, ”BelTA quotes Lukashenka as saying.
According to him, “some clever people have already bought some kind of equipment and are starting to tear the skin off people.”
“Psychosis is created in society. They (people) run to these laboratories, and one test reaches 300 rubles. If someone from private laboratories wants to help the state - on state terms. You have this week - until Monday - to rebuild all this, ”Lukashenka said.
Earlier, he instructed to prepare proposals for organizing the production of a Russian vaccine against coronavirus in the country.
