Torosyan: Armenia spends $ 1 million monthly for COVID tests

Torosyan: Armenia spends $ 1 million monthly for COVID tests

ArmInfo. Production of domestic tests for coronavirus will significantly reduce government spending in this direction. The Minister of Health of the Republic of Armenia Arsen Torosyan stated this on June 12 in the parliament during the  discussion of the report on the implementation of the state budget  for 2019.

The Minister informed that in the case of PCR tests acquired from  China, the cost of one test for coronavirus is about $ 30. Taking  into account that about 1000 COVID-19 tests are carried out in  Armenia daily, the costs per day reach $ 30 thousand, and in the  monthly terms- $ 1 million. Torosyan expressed hope that the  production of domestic tests will significantly reduce these  expenses.  Earlier it was reported that the Institute of Molecular  Biology of the NAS of Armenia is ready to produce 1-2 thousand tests  for coronavirus daily. It was noted that the sensitivity of these  tests is high and they can detect the virus even at a relatively low  titer (concentration). After the trial period, it is planned to  produce about 1-2 thousand tests daily. Testing of the domestic test  for COVID-19 is carried out in cooperation with the Ministry of  Health of the Republic of Armenia and the National Center for Disease  Control and Prevention.
