With the confirmation of the new variant of Covid 19 in the country, the demand for around 20,000 PCR tests per day in laboratories has increased and Cabinet approval has been granted to purchase those test kits and other equipment as soon as possible.

The proposal has been submitted to the Cabinet for approval by the Minister of Health due to the increasing number of PCR tests that need to be done on a daily basis.
