Government has procured 600,000 Covid-19 Rapid Diagnostic Kits.

Health Minister, Dr. Jonas Chanda says these kits that are already in the country will be distributed in a transparent manner in order to ensure an effective contribution to the Covid-19 response.

He has however, warned that there should be no pilferage of the supplies to create an artificial shortage.

The Minister has noted the continued reduction of COVID 19 patient admissions in health facilities.
