We are very grateful to Chaarat for the aid provided, – said Asylbek Sadykanov, Deputy Director of the Department of Disease Prevention and Sanitary and Epidemiological Surveillance under the Ministry of Health of the Kyrgyz Republic. – As of today, the load on the laboratory is very high, since the number of tests is not decreasing, and additional PCR equipment with reagents will come in very handy in the current situation and will help to resolve emerging issues.
