The Public Health Ministry is also developing Covid-19 test kits that do not require the drawing of blood or swabs and will only take three to five days to produce an accurate result.
These test kits should then reduce the quarantine period to less than 10 days. Results of a study on a sample group will be at the next Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration meeting.
