  Express tests to detect coronavirus to be used in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan will use express tests to detect coronavirus in the future, specialist in infectious diseases at the WHO Country Office in Azerbaijan, Javahir Suleymanova, said at a press conference held on April 24, AzVision.az reports.

Suleymanova said that through these rapid tests it will be possible to detect the infection in 45 minutes.

“A unique system has been created in the field of testing infection in Azerbaijan. Samples are taken from people and are delivered by ambulances to laboratories,” she noted.

"The necessity to visit a medical facility is no longer required, and thus people can protect themselves if they are not infected. Currently, the results of tests for coronavirus can be obtained no earlier than 6-7 hours,” she said.
