A batch of antigenic tests to diagnose coronavirus will be delivered to Belarus. They are recommended by the World Health Organization. Purchased through the Global Fund. The result must be waited from ten minutes to half an hour. But there are also nuances, experts say.

Rapid tests are also sold in pharmacies in Minsk, they are of domestic production.
