Rospotrebnadzor allowed to ensure the minimum level of coverage by testing the population for coronavirus by any method.
In the decree of the head of the department Anna Popova, published on the official website of legal information, it is said that it is possible to ensure the level of laboratory coverage for the detection of COVID-19 by any of the methods that determine the genetic material or antigen of the pathogen.
The minimum testing coverage is 200 studies per 100,000 population.
The new decree comes into force tomorrow, March 31. The previous regulation assumed that the minimum level should be ensured only through PCR tests.
Earlier today, Rospotrebnadzor said that Russia ranks third in the world in terms of coverage of the population with testing for coronavirus.
