The European Union and WHO have delivered a new equipment to Belarus to support health care in Belarus during COVID-19 pandemic.
To strengthen the capacity of laboratory services, six amplifiers for real-time PCR tests were distributed to health facilities throughout the country. They were delivered to the Republican laboratory and other laboratories in Minsk and Vitebsk, Mogilev, Gomel and Mozyr oblasts. The laboratories also received reagent kits that will allow them to conduct more than 5,000 PCR tests to diagnose coronavirus infection.
Mogilev Hospital №1 and Mogilev Regional Centre for Hygiene, Epidemiology and Public Health have additionally received medical extractors.
The equipment and reagents were purchased under the Solidarity for Health initiative funded by the European Union.
