The test system for determining immunity to COVID-19 will be registered in mid-April. This was announced on Saturday, April 4, by Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Tatyana Golikova.
She noted that the preliminary deadline for registration is 10-15 April.
“It is extremely important that our doctors first get access to this testing, since they are in direct contact with infected people ,this is exactly what we will do as soon as the system is registered,” Golikova said.
However, the Russian direct investment Fund said that the use of a new Russian-Japanese test system for detecting coronavirus is also planned for April.
These tests “Evotek-Mirai Genomics” have already been tested in Rospotrebnadzor and received approval for use in Russia.
On the eve of April 3, the Ministry of industry and trade said that Russia has registered another test system for detecting coronavirus infection. It will be produced by the domestic company “DNA-Technology”.
In addition, last week, the head of the Federal medical and biological Agency Veronika Skvortsova spoke about a new test system in Russia, which significantly reduces the time for preparing the analysis. The total study time was reduced to 90 minutes.
An outbreak of COVID-19, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, occurred in Wuhan, China, in late December. As of April 4, 4731 cases of infection were detected in Russia.
Currently, 205,612 Russians remain under medical surveillance due to suspected infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, according to Rospotrebnadzor.
