The Government will purchase another 200,000 test kits for coronavirus, but these won't be rapid-test kits, Prime Minister Igor Matovic (OLaNO) announced on Tuesday. According to him, police officers and soldiers will be present at health-care facilities where problems occur. In front of every hospital where samples are taken, the state will set up testing points to which people can come by car. Health-care workers will swab them without any need for them to leave their vehicles. Meanwhile, the prime minister added, the Government has banned exports of medicines that are needed in Slovakia.
